'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.

I have a few left from last year, but I'm afraid only about 12. Pm your address if interested.
Oooh bit slow

Hi Hazel. I've just googled them, and B&Q at Tamworth have got them listed @ £1-78 for70seeds. I KNOW we don't like paying for seeds(!!), but if you want to split a packet??
