I’ve seen the future of growing runner beans an’ the like in my little plot, and it’s called “Keyhole”. I am very impressed with the idea and structure. You see, keyhole beds are where there’s a small compost basket in the centre, surrounded by a raised bed. Compact, easy to put the waste from the bed into the compost bin. They’re growing all sorts of things in two experimental ones at the National Botanical Garden Wales. I’m well impressed with the results. I get the feeling I could do at least one of these as an experiment my self and see how that goes with me.
