  • Could they be dwarf french beans? There are ones with yellow bean pods

    Hi friends, sorry I did not comeback to you on this one,or even got back onto the forums.  Our lives changed considerably with unforseen problems.

    I missed chatting 've r y much on here , but now hopefully  I can get back into things a bit more.

    The beans from dove from above sound very. Much the same so will give them a try .but maybe too late for this year . I am  now wondering how you are getting along with them.please keep me informed.

    Hi lucky - sorry you've had some difficult times - hope that life is getting better.  

    The Buerre de Roquencourt are growing nicely - they germinated quickly and according to everything I've read they crop quite quickly too, so if you can get the seed I'd have a go, if you've got the time and energy.  

    I got my seeds from  http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Premier-Seeds-Direct/Beans-/_i.html?_fsub=9717829

    they just called them Rocquencourt. 

     

    Don't go putting yourself under added pressure though - the garden will always be there and supermarket beans are quite edible when push comes to shove.  Sometimes life gives us other priorities for a bit.

    Best of luck image

    You have plenty of time to grow dwarf beans

    The Yellow wax beans are quite prolific bearers but I didn't find them to have much flavour.  They seem to stay nice and crisp for longer but not one I'd go mad over for what that is worthimage
