What are the pros? Seed quantity
What are the cons? Plants never took off
I planted these opposite Good Mother Stallard Beans (both bought from Baker Creek) on an 8' tall arched trellis on March 27, 2014. They took more than 14 days to germinate, and once they did germinate, they were scraggly and had warped leaves. I ripped them out and planted a second round with inoculant to boost healthy growth. All the while my GMS Beans were thriving and 12" tall with flowers on them. The second round came up just as the first. I pulled all of those, soaked my last few seeds overnight and planted them the first of May. They have come up the same way and stand currently at 6" looking as sickly as ever and covered in aphids (due to their unhealthy nature). Meanwhile my GMS Beans are covered with hundreds of pods covering the arched trellis. I bought these seeds based on their wonderful reviews, good for the south, and for the variety of fresh long bean. I feel like the seeds must have came from a batch of non healthy plants.
