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.

MATURITY

June and July

HANDY TIP

Bean plants are nitrogen fixers. When cropping is over, cut plants down and dig in as a green manure.
