When to sow
WHEN TO SOW
Late October to November or February to March
Where to Sow
Draw out seed drills direct into the growing site 5cm(2in) deep in rows , pacing the seeds 10-15cm (4-6in) apart , spacing rows 60cm (24in) apart. Early spring sowings may benefit from being sown under cloches.
What to do next
If necessary thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart . When the first pods have set pinch out the top 6cm (2 1/2in) to help discourage blackfly. Harvest once pods become filled with succulent tasty young beans.
June and July
Bean plants are nitrogen fixers. When cropping is over, cut plants down and dig in as a green manure.
