Do runner beans need to be pollinated?

I've been growing Firestorm  for quite a few years now, recommended it to several people, self pollinating, drought resistant as well, I never water them.  Fantastic amount of beans on them, a good all rounder.  Everyone germinates as well., got them from ebay, 99p for 45 seeds.

I've got some which are similar, Black n Blue. The stems do look quite dark in yours, but there are lots all much the same.

They just about overwintered, covered with a big pile of mulch but cuttings were easy so have lots now just in case.

£18.00 for a dahlia is a lot of money!

I would remove those bad leaves.  Not prune the whole plant, just the leaves.

You could over winter the tuber and take cuttings next year, doesn't help now but I doubt you'll buy one now anyway.

Do Ebay ever say in which country the supplier lives ?  Might give you a clue as to what it could be ?  At least a starting try and ID.

I'd be tempted to leave it confined to the pot until you know

 Yes they do Philippa here's a classic😀
