veg patch

lucylema Posts: 834 Forumite

I have a spot in the garden for my veg patch. I have five boxes and in one is 5 raspberry plants and two blackcurrent bushes. I would like to do sweetcorn in one of them and have a pot for runner beans. Are these ok to plant now? I am going to put toms, cucs and letture in another leaving me with two spare. I have ideas for the others but is the above sounding ok?

    How big are the boxes ... sweetcorn need a lot of space, and you only get one (two if you're luck) cobs per plant.

    Too early for runner beans yet ... they will be killed by a frost
