I thought the first one might be Black Pearl, don't know the second and the third is very similar to Fire Cracker.the trouble is some Euphorbias look very similar.

Verdun I do not leave the roots in over the winter, I clear the run and make a bean trench to fill up with kitchen waste ( not meat or bones ) to be ready for the next year.

so no problem putting new seeds in when the time is right.

No Verdun you don't keep the roots for growing on more beans ,you still plant fresh beans,!!!!

Yes runner beans are one of the few crops you can do this with, when they have finished cropping it is worth cutting the top growth off and leaving the roots in as the roots hold nitrogen which is good for when you plant beans the next year.

Does anyone recognise this?
