Hi Marly,

What do you still have all of the seeds from your original list left?

Purple pole beabs

Hi Marly,

I have been looking allover my city for purple pole bean seeds and cannot find any. I'd love to have some if you have any left.

Thanks

I found some at an Italian grocery store. The seed rep was just putting out a new seed display.

and planted them about 11 days ago. So far - nothing! :cry: I planted scarlett runner beans at the same time, and they've sprouted through nicely and are growing well already. So are the other seeds that I planted that day. I don't know whether the purple pole bean variety takes longer to germinate? I just checked the seed packet to see if it says anything about germination time, but there's no info there.

My purple runner beans took a long time to germinate, too.

Thx Booklady. I guess I'll just have to be patient. :) I finally also found some info on a website that said Hyacinth purple runner beans can take between 2-3 weeks to germinate. So I guess I just need to give them more time. I got panicky when the Scarlett Runners were so quick to pop up through, but still no action from the Hyacinth Beans.

Update: :D Just checked my planter which I put back outside on my balcony about 10am as it's warmer here today..... I see some Hyacinth beans are finally sprouting through!!

It means Private Message. You should see buttons within everyone's posts, i believe.
