We saw this plant growing at Ryton organic gardens. Quite interested in growing it.After looking on web suggestion that it is poisoness, and need to  cook the pods for a long time. Has anyone any experiance of this bean.Name Lob Lob bean or Hyacinth bean.

I've grown them and they didn't come to much. Just as a flower though, not as a food crop. I have seen them looking quite good in other gardens.

I grew some last year.  The weather was just too cool and they came to nothing much.
