Planting out.

Is it better to plant allotment rows north/south, or east/west



With low growing veg. it makes little difference. With potatoes north to south gives warmth from the sun on each side of the ridge.
Runner beans should be east to west so they can take the strength of the wind when they have grown up the bean sticks.
