Dwarf French Bean seeds "Dior".
A wax, yellow pod, of very good flavour, produced on compact plants. Exceptionally uniform pods and pod set, producing pods 13cm in length, and shows an attractive deep yellow colouring fairly early on as beans develop. Height 50cm (harvest in approx 70 days).
WHEN TO SOW
April to end of June
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings can be made under glass at a temperature of 16 C, sow into 8cm (3in) pots or modular trays filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm (8in) apart with rows spaced 45cm (18in) apart.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Seedlings sown under glass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Direct sown seedlings can be thinned out as required. Water regularly during dry weather.
July to September
Harvest regularly when young and keep a high moisture level around the roots as soon as pods start to develop.
