I get the same thrill each time my seed orders come tyrough the letter box. My HSL seed choices were: Aubergine - Szechuan, Climbing French Bean - Melbourne's Minature, Beetroot - Armenian, Carrot - Red Elephant,Lettuce - Bronze Arrow, Pea - Robinson, Squash - Georgia Candy Roaster.

Bronze Arrow is my favourite lettuce, with Bunyards Matchless my 2nd fave. Sometimes I choose something because I like the name, hence the Melbourne bean! Am excited to see how they will all grow this year. Let us know how yours do.


Thank you, Julianne, that's interesting. I grew Red Elephant last year and the year before and they did really well - big chunky carrots. I always used to get climbing French beans, as I couldn't see the point of the dwarf variety, until I got raised beds and realised the climbing ones created a problem with the netting.
