    French beans and courgettes

    We spent a day at Wisley last week and in the model vegetable garden I noticed that they were planting courgettes under the French bean wigwams. This makes good sense because later in the summer I’ve noticed that courgette plants in full sun can get badly affected by mildew.  This way, as the beans grow they will provide some shade.
