@Mikekally so the plan was to pinch out the tops when they got too tall... But they seem to have grown 2 feet in the past week and are all squished against the top of the net 😮

Ha, and next year I need to not plant a protective metre high screen of prickly borage plants that I have to lean through to get to mine! Fun being a noob, eh?

Q: Is that a south facing wall at the back? Could you not have a growing bed there, wind protection heat from sun heated concrete?

@no_akira we're not planning on keeping that wall; you can't really see from this angle but it's on the point of falling over so we'll probably take it out.
