    having found black russian broard beans on your site where can they be bought in the uk thank you

    Heritage Harvest has them. Not sure if they ship to UK, but since they’re Canadian, one would assume so. I bought some last year and they did OK.

    YES Heritageharvestseed.com has Black Russian Faba Beans. I brought them and planted this spring. I live in Canada – Zone 2 and they are doing great! Can’t wait to harvest a few – want to save some seed as well. FYI – I have been buying from Heritage Harvest Seeds for a few years now and I have always been happy with my seeds. Highly recommend them. You won’t believe how many varieties they have of beans and tomatoes!
