seed swap ...

A month or so back I posted off some Sweet Pea seeds to my good blog friend Simone at Linden Grove, and in return she kindly forwarded on some seeds to me.

The seeds are a rare variety of climbing French Bean, from North America

... Cherokee Trail of Tears.

Each sown in individual cells, I waited - and with patience rewarded, they are now romping away very nicely.

I'm going to use twiggy Hazel poles as supports.

Thanks Simone

Hi Louise! Thanks for the mention! I am glad that the beans are doing well for you, the ones I planted up are doing well too. Thank you for the Elegant Ladies sweetpeas. They are growing along nicely and I have transplanted them into a big pot and put canes in for them to climb up. x

Twiggy hazel stems! I can just hear Alan Titchmarsh saying that. So English!

How lovely - looking forward to seeing how they turn out. I love the idea of hazel supports.

How exciting! I am filled with wonder that little seeds contain the genetic material to grow into sturdy plants and produce vegetables. Isn't nature wonderful?

I'm waiting for some seeds myself after I ordered some on eBay and I can't wait to get them in the ground. We've had the wettest spring, but I'm hoping that the weather is going to improve.

Happy Gardening Louise!

Hello Louise! I have you on my reader, but it seems whenever I try to click through, I get a blank page. So I'm going direct this time! Hurray for your French beans -- I hope they will produce well for you.

Terrific that you swapped seeds and your beans are doing so well romping up the twiggly hazel sticks :) I'm glad to read that the sweet peas seeds were much appreciated also. and doing well.

What a jolly good idea a seed swap is.. If anyone would like some mixed aquilegia's or Ladybird Poppy seeds..then do ask.
Look forward to seeing those beans romping away.. the flowers can be so pretty.

Strangely enough that is where my blog name came from, Mr Titchmarsh suggested using Twiggy peasticks to grow beans and I said to Mr Twigs, I will definitely use that name one day!!
Hope your beans are as tasty as they will be pretty. I love the pretty flowers on bean plants.
