The only truly dwarf broad beans that I know of Ina are Sutton.


Sounds familiar. They did certainly not take over anything... Not a single bean this year!

Back to whatever I had before next year, even if I have to stake them.

Re: Someone say something

We are going to try to find the same variety again, if we can remember what it was. That's always my problem, too - never remember what variety I grew, whether it was a dud or particularly good! I had dud broad beans last year - planted rest of bag this year, and same problem... Can I remember what...

Re: UK ban on new diesel and petrol cars 2040

I also fear that charging up (overnight especially) will be open to all sorts of vandalism... Will it just need some kids with big bolt cutters to walk around at night and, er, disconnect dozens of vehicles from their charging point? Or is it even easier - just pull out the plug? How does that work?...

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

Thanks for that, Weedo, but that's the main problem. Sanity and reason seem to be in very short supply at the moment. :roll: Unfortunately, I have to agree. Common sense has gone out the window... Now it's on the news again that most of our vets are from the EU. (I'd heard before that almost all ou...

Re: Best place to grow tomatoes

I have those memories of the most delicious tomato salad in France... Straight from the garden. They had an old variety there which had been passed on between farmers - they were huuuuuge; one tomato was enough for salad for four people! And the flavour - never had anything like it anywhere else. I ...

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

But if there were to be serious mutterings about sending the foreigners back home we would certainly apply for Irish citizenship, I'm definitely not moving back to Blighty. I think I'm more likely to be chucked out of the UK - after all, I can't even get permanent residency here after 20 years in S...

Re: Someone say something

Australians do it in Australia too . I think another fact they'd not considered may be that in large parts of our beautiful country there's very unreliable mobile and internet connection! Now I've not heard from them for a few days, and I've suggested a breakfast meeting in Edinburgh on Saturday......

Re: 101 ways to improve my memory - PLEASE

Maggie - I have the same suspicions about the low fat diets contributing to dementia in a big way. Remember that really old woman who was on the news not long ago whose diet seemed to consist mainly of eggs? Chock full of cholesterol - seemed to do her no harm.

The wind has brought my greenhouse down, so that's what I should be doing today. It's still quite windy, though - and I've just not got the up-and-go... :( All my little plants will be squashed, anyway. Oh, no, Ina! That is a nasty setback. Will it be a big job to rebuild it? Do you have plants in ...
