Kidney Beans

In between showers this morning I managed to put kidney bean plants in a large pot near the back door. Must admit I bought the plants from my local garden centre hoping they will have a good start. I also put in bamboo canes so look forward to them climbing away. The tomato plants in the greenhouse are looking fine - they have their first set of flowers so gave them a little shake to distribute the pollen.

What variety did you buy Dot ? Haven't sown any beans this year, but I hope it's not too late to buy ones ready to plant... I was told that Lady Diana were a good green bean to grow as they freeze well. K isn't keen on "squeaky" beans so would be pointless to grow lots anyway.

Sorry Yummy I don't know the name of the plants that I bought. The plants weren't quite ready and the owner of the Nursery just got me five plants from another part of her Nursery. I'll make a telephone call to find out and will come back to you.

I planted some dried borlotti beans that had been around in my cupboard and they are growing fine - I'm looking forward to trying them in pods!

Everything is so much later growing this year, so I'm sure it's not too late for beans. Mine are only just twirling around their canes. The tomatoes are getting flowers, so hope the rain doesn't rot them. As usual, they will end up in green tomato chutney, never ripening, so all is not wasted.

Still haven't found out the variety of mine yet Yummy. They are slowly climbing but the strong winds we've had lately are not helping. The Toms. now have their second set of flowers but are in the greenhouse.They are looking very strong - should get a good crop.

Well Dot, I bought some and they are now in, Painted Lady and White Emergo. They came in a duo pack, so not too many beans that we will be over run with them...I hope !!
I soaked them overnight to give them a start, and we've had a good amount of rain since I put them in so hopefully they will establish themselves and grow regardless of the lateness of putting them in.
