A few years ago I planted some beans I d grown from seed . They were yellow pencil thin and the plant grew into a lowish bush . I cannot remember what they were and have looked in fothergills but I cant find any described as bush type plants .
Can anyone help please, i would be very grateful , thanks in advance .X
Could they be dwarf french beans? There are ones with yellow bean pods
I'm planning to grow these next year http://www.rareseeds.com/beurre-de-rocquencourt-bush-wax-bean/
Hi friends, sorry I did not comeback to you on this one,or even got back onto the forums. Our lives changed considerably with unforseen problems.
I missed chatting 've r y much on here , but now hopefully I can get back into things a bit more.
The beans from dove from above sound very. Much the same so will give them a try .but maybe too late for this year . I am now wondering how you are getting along with them.please keep me informed.
Hi lucky - sorry you've had some difficult times - hope that life is getting better.
The Buerre de Roquencourt are growing nicely - they germinated quickly and according to everything I've read they crop quite quickly too, so if you can get the seed I'd have a go, if you've got the time and energy.
I got my seeds from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Premier-Seeds-Direct/Beans-/_i.html?_fsub=9717829
they just called them Rocquencourt.
Don't go putting yourself under added pressure though - the garden will always be there and supermarket beans are quite edible when push comes to shove. Sometimes life gives us other priorities for a bit.
Best of luck
You have plenty of time to grow dwarf beans
The Yellow wax beans are quite prolific bearers but I didn't find them to have much flavour. They seem to stay nice and crisp for longer but not one I'd go mad over for what that is worth
Thank you friends, I have grow n purple podded
dwarf for a change , but have the beans dove from above suggested for next year.
Hi Lucky How are the purple podded ones doing?
