How To Grow:
Sow dwarf snap bean vegetable seeds 25mm deep in dark damp soil & avoid watering for a day or two afterwards. Ensure soil has been well prepared with organic compost & aged animal manure. Sow 10-15cm apart allowing 50-60cm between rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed and protect plants from wind. Plant in 1-3m rows and remove weeds regularly. Keep the roots cool – a mulch of garden compost will help considerably. Water well in dry periods.
Additional fertiliser is not required a legumes produce their own nitrogen.
Regular harvesting will result in prolonged yields.
