These bean seeds produce a heavy, well flavoured crop. It produces long fleshy pods that are virtually stringless.
Dwarf Beans are ideal for the smaller garden, and can even be grown in pots where space is limited.
Plant Height: 50-60cm
How To Grow:
Sow 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 7-10cm apart, allowing 50cm between rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed and protect plants from the wind. Plant in 3-5 metre rows and remove weeds regularly.
Water well during dry periods.
Additional fertilising is not required as legumes produce their own nitrogen.
Regular harvesting will result in continued yields.
When To Plant: Spring and Summer; autumn too in warmer zones.
