Brian Jones tending the runner beans in the Piermaster’s House wartime garden

When I was down at the Albert Dock yesterday I popped in to see the wartime garden at the Piermaster’s House and managed to catch museum attendant Brian Jones at work tending the plants. This week he has planted some strawberries to replace the ones that didn’t survive the winter. Other plants in the garden are doing really well already, the rhubarb and cabbages are huge. He reckons the runner beans will have reached the top of the poles supporting them by mid July, so I’ll pop back then to have a look.

You can see how well everything is growing in a Flickr slideshow of the garden, which includes old and new photos.
