was an accident a couple of years ago- well, I had
dug up plants before the frost to keep alive inside over winter. Only
trouble was, it took so long to warm up outside next year that plants were
already flowering, and I had runner beans some 2 months earlier than ever
The cool, wet summer this year has been bad for vegetables, but I
had beans inside in July.
Pollination can be a problem - beans need Bumblebees; I leave one door open
every day, next to which is a bee-plant like comfrey or Viper‚Äôs Bugloss.
