    Just looked on their site and they are a lovely pink and not like the salmon ones. Would be great to see how true they are to the pic. I will grow both mine out and add to the circle so you can have the colour range

    Oops, just seen mcdood has salmon flowered crown in his list so I could do HSL Coopers ‘Bean’ Pea if necessary instead. I’ll be growing both so either will be available assuming crop does ok It’ll be interesting to compare the colours of the crown peas.

    Anyone else want to join? With all the seed companies struggling there must be one or two willing to save a few at the end of the season to share

    I'm growing Pea - Fairbeard's Non Pareil (HSL). Only had 10 seeds so not sure how they'll do - of whether I can save enough to swap - but I'll bung some in if I do.

    Iíve shelved my beloved Painted Lady Runner Beans for a self pollinating bi-colour flowered, Tenderstar. Assuming it wonít cross, and they crop ok, I could add some to my offering?
