Runner beans Wisley Magic, second year running - fabulous - a heavy crop of long straight beans, virtually stringless with a proper runner bean flavour.
Courgettes - wlll grow yellow Parador again next year as they cropped really well last year. This year's Soleil were a disappointment.
Swiss Chard Lucullus - far superior to the glamourous coloured chards, both for cropping and flavour.
Old favourite broad beans Aquadulce Claudia - overwintered well in long snowy weather, so reliable with such a good flavour, and a good crop even after a cold spring.
