What to do Next

Protect seed and young seedlings from bird damage by covering with netting. Keep plants weed free throughout the growing season. Pick pods regularly

Handy Tip

Plants require no staking but pods camouflage well in the foliage so search well. To cook, just top and tail the pods, steam or lightly boil and serve with a knob of butter - delicious!
