I’m really just growing these for fun as I’m not fussed about eating them and will probably give the fruit away. Although they need plenty of space and invariably end up with powdery mildew I’ll probably try a different variety next year.
The gladioli didn’t do at all well last year so I bought two new varieties – a mostly pink one and the other white and yellow – both of which are now in flower.
There are still lots of butterflies around and I was pleased to see, and photograph, this Comma resting on a dwarf French bean leaf.
Have a good week!
