    My Striped Bunch CFBs were weird - they didn't climb at all, just hunched up with big pods without much inside them. Didn't save any.
    Bijou Mangetout also non-starters for seed saving 'cos I ate them all.
    May have some Wizard Field beans which have been brilliant but it depends on how many are in the Circle as I don't have a lot of spares.

    I have enough Wizards for you both - if you want some?
    Just been looking at the Gigantes but they're very slow ripening. Never grown them before so don't know what to expect.

    Yes please VC...I have enough rattlesnake for a few of us. I've been eating the Kew blue but should be ok for a few packs.

    If its not too late I'll join in on this, can confirm what I have later but I definitely have some ying yang beans and I have plenty of wizard beans too though it looks like VC might have those covered so i could so one of my other beans instead

    It's not too late Ryleh...but they need to be unusual, interesting or heritage varieties..... One variety is enough.
