    I've just found another attraction for the crimson Broad bean. The scent off the flowers is terrific!!! I spent about 30 mins looking for an escaped Primrose or the like never thinking it could be these!!

    We've been to Ryton today and see that crimson broad beans are listed as an example of a heritage seed.

    Thats right BK. I was given 4 seeds by someone & 3 came up so they are being pampered in the greenhouse at the moment for seed production for next year. The scent when you open the greenhouse door I incredible, If they tase half as good they'll be delicious!!

    Nick, great color. Love the pink one, the stems are so long they could be used for cut flowers. Do you have a name for it?
