Forgot to add Climbing French Bean Mantra.  Very early, wide, long and flat seedless green pods of the Romano type bean.  Original seed received from Jeannine's and Jayb's magical seed parcel.

They sound very appealing. I've come to really like Romano type beans lately.
And rather nice to have a variety that originated from that legendary seed parcel.

That's wonderful, Ruud. Fingers crossed.

And lovely to have already received two exciting boxes bursting with very interesting seeds - from Galina and from Markfield Rover. Many thanks to both for their care in saving, packaging and posting.

Having just finished sorting out my bean seeds,  I can add three more varieties which have done very well for me this year.

Squaw - one of my most productive dwarf beans this year with attractively patterned seed. I found it good to eat as a shelly/demi-sec or as a dried bean
Rosso di Lucca - this was amazingly productive for a dwarf bean. It’s an Ark of Taste Heirloom from Italy
Gialét- also from Italy and also adopted by the Slow Food Foundation’s Ark of Taste. It’s known for its delicate taste and is still grown using traditional methods in the Valbelluna district.

Mine will hopefully be posted tomorrow or Wednesday. I’m afraid I’ve been delayed by snow and chilblains and a dog show!

Thanks for updating. Nice to know they're nearly on their way. Hope the dog show went well and good luck with the chilblains!

Don't know what I'm going to do with all of these beans! Thanks for these additions JanG, good to have some productive drying varieties. Gialét is a climber or bush? Looks similar to Zolfino.

I’ve added 5 more beans to my contribution so I’m not exactly helping, sorry Vetivert! ;)

Good to have your extra beans, Silverleaf. I'm sure Vetivert will cope!

Zolfino does seem similar in colouring and tenderness to Gialét, but Gialét is climbing whereas Zolfino is dwarf. Also confusingly an alternative name for Gialét seems to be Solferino. I think all these names relate to the yellowness of all three.

Any not grown in 22 will happily wait a year.  Bean seeds stored dark and dry stay viable for 5 or 6 years or even longer.  But I can't wait to get to know my new beans, thank you all.

I’ll update with the final list later as I can’t remember all the beans without looking them up, but I added one of my seed bank peas. I nicknamed it Beacon and it has gorgeous cerise/apple blossom flowers which  look like someone painted them in with cherry pink watercolour paints. It’s another soup type pea like Unity, not quite so productive but the flowers are definitely worth it.

That's a lovely addition, Silverleaf. So delicate.

And the good news is that all seeds have now safely arrived. I'm actually away for a short stay but hope to get parcels despatched by the middle of next week - which hopefully will beat the bulk of the Christmas rush.

Thanks again to everyone. It's a pretty impressive selection altogether!

 I was given a Seed Advent calendar this year , I will keep the envelopes and use some of the parcels contents to grow and refill for someone else next year . Utter joy!
