I'm not a winter gardener by any stretch of the imagination and due to health reasons am stuck not able to do much at the moment so am spending my time dreaming about next years crops.
I adore edamame but is it possible to grow in this country? I found a link for chickpeas which says it is easy to grow and tastes similar to edamame. Has anyone grow this? I have so far only grown quite traditional, easy to grow fruit and veg in my garden and really want to branch out into the more unusual next year so any tips/suggestions will be very welcome.

So, are you going to grow them?

I'm certainly going to try! They look fairly easy to grow, it's all down to the weather really And of course they are really cheap to grow when you have loads of the dried ones in your cupboard from the supermarket

I like to try something a bit unusual every year just for the fun of it. This might just be next years experiment

I got the above book for Christmas and it is full of unusual edible plants and trees. I was browsing to find where to find seeds for this as it sounds perfect for me "drought tolerant impervious to most pests and capable of withstanding light frost and these self fertilise themselves and plants around them. Sunny site bury 2cm deep and 10 -15cm apart in well drained soil with extra grit dug in. Skimp on feeding. Rapid grower. Harvest regularly"
Any idea where I can buy seeds?

JO51, buy a pack of dried chickpeas from the supermarket and use them as seed.
