What is your worry? Disease, invasive species or something else
I've just looked it up on Google and found this. Apparently they grow them in the Cambridge University Botanical Garden, so they shouldn't be a problem!
Dolichos lablab, aka Lablab purpureus
I've grown those. Got them from Chiltern Seeds I think though it's a long time ago.
thats great, thank you. I've planted them, just waiting for the first signs of life
Good luck, I love growing something different
Laura.......I've grown them for years...........pretty scented flowers and edible pods. In my experience they need more heat to germinate than other beans but well worth growing .
oh brilliant thanks Phillippa. It was the flowers that drew me to choosing them in the first place so hopefully they'll show soon.
