    Mine came today too! thank you Plantologist, it's a shame so many dropped out but with your local seed swap too it's been worth while. Let's hope 2015 gets lots of takers. Sparrow, the Mr Fearns are really prolific, a lovely slim bean too. Im going to grow it again this year. I'm very chuffed with my thelma Saunders ...looking forward to spring!

    How similar are they to trail of tears Scarlet? For some reason I wasn't expecting the beans to be black. Am going to grow them at a decent separation...

    Ah, that was my thought when I received them. Though they were picked up in a heritage seed swap. And was in an HSL envelope. I googled at the time, eventually found that indeed they were all black, quite small black beans, green pods, very slim, last year was a very good year for my beans but on average 6+ beans per pod. Pretty prolific plants even though I read that they need care.(again the weather?) I grew mine some distance from my other beans, unlikely any crosses - I have quite a big plot. If you want more, please PM. I also grew snowcap..lovely looking bean but very poor yeild, it's a climber though possibly only grow to max 5ft

    Thanks Scarlet. I might well PM, though I can see they are in the VSP and I will be loading down poor VC with some muscat de provence seeds when they have dried.

    I have already run out of windowsill space with my chilli seedlings and am about to construct tier 2 for the next trays. OH is going to go postal...
