Garden Ghosts

Runners-fleeced-up-may-2017
Runner beans with fleece protection

Some ghostlike scenes in my garden at the moment, the runners have all been covered in two layers of fleece for about a fortnight. Not just for frost but we have had biting north east cold winds over that time, the fleece seems to have done the intended job and beans are still healthy and climbing

I planted out my Polestar runners, had to, they were just romping away, but the fleece will help

Also a friend gave me some Enorma runner plants, also romping away, they have just been planted out in pot of five

The begonias are a bit hit & miss, some are growing well, others just limping along. I don’t think it is suppliers, seems to mixed results from both Wilkinson & Home Bargains. However I have now palnted them out the front in large tubs, currently behind chicken mesh to stop the blooming cats digging them up & pooing there

And spotted the first lily beetle, duly squished
