Gardening question

    Happy New Year to all of my personal encylopedia!! First question of 2011 :biglaugh:

    Can anyone tell me where I can get runner bean seeds? Not dwarf/french or flat beans but 'proper' runner beans. I am sure the latin name is something like 'Phaseolus coccineus' or scarlet runners as they have lovely red flowers. All advice/pointers - as usual - gratefully received!

    These may be the ones

    Eden Seeds

     

    The link doesn't take you straight to beans page! Look up beans, they have Scarlet beans and other beans with photos

    the Italians who grow these usually call these "Flat Beans", i think.

     

    if they haven't got Scarlet Runners in The Central Market (-say, at Prettejohns) then try "Goodies And Grains " in the Market Precinct (off Gouger St)

     

    ..they have a good stock of open pollinated Eden Seeds.
