Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made underglass 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 underglass 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


Sow small amounts at regular intervals to ensure a continuous supply of beans throughout the season.
