    Default 'Cobra' French Beans - can you help?

    Our esteemed Sectretary at the Hill, Hadyn, says that because his family don't like French beans, he doesn't grow them (fair enough).

    However, he had a handful of Cobra from a fellow allotment holder last year & - surprise! - he thought they were scrummy and would like to grow just a few this year - maybe a dozen or so.

    The chap who he had them off has since given up his plot, so Hadyn asked me if I had any, what with having grown - err - a number of different bean varieties last year

    Now I have a bean collection to be proud of (including heritage dwarf and climbing beans), but Cobra is one that I don't have - so if any kind grapes have any that I could swap for (or SAE, if you'd prefer), I would be jolly grateful and will be in with the Powers That Be big time.

    Well, it would have been quicker actually but I let the dogs out for a wee, powdered my nose, got the seed box out and made a cup of tea first.
