  • Beans are hungry crops that require ample organic matter dug in prior to sowing.
  • Sow in pots undercover in April for an earlier harvest or directly outside when all danger of frost has passed.
  • Protect young plants from pests.
  • Loosely tie in young plants to supports.
  • Feed once in flower with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong cropping.
  • Harvest pods when young for fresh beans or leave pods to dry on the vines for beans to store.
