Sow  April to June


Plant May to July  


Harvest July to September


Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made under glass 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 20cm(8in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) 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. Provide support by canes or netting for plants to climb. Water regularly during dry weather. 


Handy Tip

Pick regularly whilst beans are young to encourage a longer harvest period.
