What to do on arrival
On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.
Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.
Late-July onwards depending on planting time.
Grow up canes spaced 25-30cm (10-12") apart in rows spaced 60cm (24") apart or as wigwams.
Plant outside once all risk of frost has passed, Plant into a rich fertile soil and water well after planting and throughout the growing season. Provide some support for beans to climb up using canes or netting. Pick regularly whilst young and do not allow beans to get old and tough to prolong the harvest period.
