  • WHEN TO SOW

    February to April

    WHERE TO SOW

    February sowings in pots or root trainers in the greenhouse or under cloches in the growing site. Later sowings draw out seed drills direct into the growing site 5cm(2in) deep in rows , spacing the seeds 10-15cm (4-6in) apart ,and spacing the rows 60cm (24") apart.

    WHAT TO DO NEXT

    Glasshouse seedlings should be transplanted to the growing site in March, 10cm (4") apart in rows 60cm (24in) apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 10cm (4") apart, the thinnings can be transplanted to make extra rows. When the first beans form, remove the top 6cm (2 1/2in) to help discourage black fly. Harvest once pods become filled with succulent tasty young beans.

    HANDY TIP

    Usually grown from a Spring sowing but in most years is successful from an early November sowing under cloches for a June crop.
