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.February 28, 2020 at 6:46 am #67423

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 tooMarch 4, 2020 at 12:59 am #67498
Well done Karen,March 15, 2020 at 3:57 pm #67549
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 BillMarch 16, 2020 at 12:26 am #67554
