    Wizard Field beans drying on the plants as I type.
    Not sure if I'll have enough of anything else to swap this year.

    Default I'd like to join!

    I'd like to join in please. Love bean seeds and so easy to save seed too. I have the following for swap, all saved from own seed.

    Greek gigantes
    Dwarf borlotti
    Cherokee trail of tears
    Acquilon dwarf french beans
    Wizard field bean

    There might be more depending on how they dry (or not get eaten).

    I'm sorry to say that I only got enough for myself for next year, I just couldn't keep up with the watering required.
    I'm hoping when I open the Spring Blush snap peapods, that the bladdy wrigglers have left me enough of those to share.... they're my last chance

    Hi Kitty and welcome.
    You'll need to be a member of the Forum for 3 months and have made 50 posts before you can join any of the Seed Circles & Swaps but you have plenty of time to do that before the Circle closes in November.

    The Seed swap rules are at https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...nce_76437.html

    I don’t think I’m going to have much luck either! I will update late but I will still run the circle regardless.

    Kitty, you are more than welcome to join this year although you do need to add a few more posts to your name. The seed circles won’t be finalised until end of November to enable drying.

    Jack - what a disaster!
