Seed Swaps

Runner Bean        

I hope these will be ok, sometimes the slugs nip the heads off them before they get started. I have used the rest of the seed packet from last year.
Germinated, and it had taken almost a month! but they are being eaten, so I have covered them with plastic bottles
So slow, they don’t seem to like growning in Kent, I think the cucumber planted in the centre of the poles will be first to the top of the wig-wam!

Runner bean 'Galaxy' likes a position of full sun light, which is a perfect fit for your garden.

Remember to water moderately.
