WHEN TO SOW

April to June

Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made underglass at a temperature of 16°C, sow 3 seeds per 8cm (3in) pot 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 20-30cm(8-12in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) apart.

What to do next

Seedlings sown underglass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Place a support cane at each planting station. Alternatively circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam. For optimum crop, place canes 30-45cm (12-18") apart with 3 beans planted per cane. Water regularly during dry weather.

MATURITY

July to September

HANDY TIP

Keep picking regularly or any pods left will soon run to seed and prevent new growth and shorten the cropping season. Any surplus beans can be added to the freezer.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

A good source of Vitamin C, Folic acid and Iron. High fibre content.
