Yes I am afraid so flowerbug. And have been rediscovering greasy beans big time. They are doing so much better here in the much brighter light and warmer summer weather in the South of Germany at 48.5 degrees N, than in Britain at 52 degrees N. What was a struggle in Britain, seems to work much better here. However, I found a number of crosses. Do greasies cross more easily than other beans?welcome to TEG from mid-Michigan.
beans you say?
Most beans grow more strongly too and I have had broken bean supports, that would have been entirely sufficient in Britain. Still need to work out a lot of how to do things best here. Pleased to meet fellow 'beanaholics'.
