Runner Bean Trench
Domestic issues meant Autumn/Winter a write off for gardening so I am now trying to play catch up. We have had so much rain (possibly contributing to my plethora of 'good ideas' as still stuck indoors a lot) I wondered if I could make it work for me?
Need to plant out runner beans before they take over the greenhouse and can't be disentangled. Ground is v wet as rain on clay is not good, also quite a high water table.
I have to clear my neighbours rockery plant each year from one of my sheltered bits, this year it has gone mad and is everywhere. I think it is a sedum (rubbish at flowering plants) possibly stonecrop? Anyway, if I turned it over (like turfs) in the bottom of the trench do you think it might mean I could plant the beans out without them getting waterlogged. Or would this stuff just reach for the sky and interfere with the beans?
Any other suggestions for keeping this trench wet but not soggy will be welcomed!
