Has anyone tried these?  A good idea or not?

Well I guess many of us have already invested in buying new seeds, but have you gone for the ones you know best or something different.  I suppose it's a bit like gambling - do you place your money on a plant with reliable past form or do you take a long shot and back one with little form but will outperform the rest of the field according to a tip off.  Bit obscure really, but who's the gambler and who is the one who plays safe on this forum?

Don't worry they are still in their packets. But I am thinking of having a dedicated area just for beans. I have some long lengths of rebar and the idea is to build a structure that I can tie the canes to each year and grow the beans up. Then after the harvest and the canes are stacked for the winter I will dig  big trench and fill it with all the rubbish and compost ready to use again next year.  What are your thoughts.

Finished clearing up bits of timber, cleared seven beds of adventurous and hardy little weeds. Almost feel sorry for them, struggled to establish themselves over winter then I pluck them out and add them to the compost heap. Potatoes bought and safely stored, onions too. Edged one bed with soldier bricks. Need to dig over celeriac bed and a little more weeding but getting there. weather here fine yesterday and today but frosty at night.
