  • For an early crop sow in warmth in mid spring 6 weeks before the last expected frost in your area.
  • Sow seeds individually in 7.5cm (3in) pots at 18-21C (65-70F). Otherwise sow outdoors 4-6 in between seeds when the soil has warmed during late spring after all danger of frost as they are sensitive to low soil temperatures.
  • Keep weed free and protect from pests whilst young.
  • Plants require support to climb.
  • Harvest pods when young for fresh beans or allow pods to dry on plants for beans to store.
