    I have been contacted by a guy called Adam Alexander. He wants to research the origins of the Rhondda Black runner beans. He is a passionate conservationist.
    May I introduce him to the member who have me a bag of seed? They are still the best beans I ever grew.
    Sorry, but I can’t remember his name, shocking isn’t it?

    I think it was Gloster, or Chepstow I sent them too you, They were a sport from a normal bean at the time ,I remember the year I grew them ,Because it was the year my son was born.

    I’m still growing these runner beans from the original seeds Allan you sent me a few years ago, also I’ve past them onto other plot holders too, they are such amazing beans and can see why they are excellent for showing too :good:

    Allen, can I make an introduction between yourself and Adam Alexander?

    If it’s okay with you, can you share your phone number so I can pass it on to Adam?

    Or whatever you suggest.

    Thanks Bill
