Seeds to share

Forget the seed catalogues. Trading seeds is a great way to expand your garden with new plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables, shrubs, and trees.

Jackie - it is still well below freezing here most days so I haven't put them in the mail yet. I'm hoping for a break in the weather very soon. This is getting very depressing!

The SRB's are a vine that grows straight up. I doesn't spread vertically. Mine are planted in a 1/2 barrel and usually reach about 20' or so. For a wire fence what I would suggest is to space them out along the fence and as the tendrils grow feed them vertically along the fence, they will grow upwardsfrom the tip ends. Thay are an annual so leave the beans on the plant until the pods ripen and then collect the beans for next year . :D

Thanks Lyn. It's still freezing at night here but it is getting above 0 during the days.The snow just isn't melting fast enough for me. I would love to try some SRB if you still have some left.

I sure do and I'll send those along with the bulbils when I can. The SRB's can be started outside right where you want them to grow.
