Roxy, I don't know anything about those beans, but if you have seeds to trade you should check out the Trinity Park swap coming up on November 1st. There will be a lot of local people there looking for new varieties, plants, seeds and garden stuff. One of our traders even feeds everyone in exchange for a nominal fee of a plant or some seeds. And besides, it's loads of fun and you get to meet all the wackies who log on here. Cheryl

Many years ago I planted Greensleeves green beans and they were one of the best bush beans I've raised. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a supplier; the company we got the beans from is well known but they haven't offered them for years. Does anyone know where I can buy these beans?

I grow Contenders each year, and have never been disappointed. Usually, the best place to buy seeds is at your local farm store that carries seeds. These have always done better for me that the ones in packets. Just my opinion.
