Information

Dwarf beans are very quick growing and may be sown every three or four weeks from late spring to give a succession of pickings throughout summer/autumn. They’re handy for filling in any gaps and perfect for tubs and window boxes.

Climbing beans need a little more space and some form of support to help them climb, but on the flip side you’ll get many more beans from each plant. They’re a great way to add height to the vegetable garden and can make an attractive feature.

Beans can be further categorised by their pods. Green beans generally have smooth, slender pods. Depending on where you live, you’ll also know them as string beans, snap beans or French beans. Runner beans tend to have slightly coarser pods and continue cropping a few weeks later than string beans and are more tolerant of cooler conditions.

A handful of potash at planting is beneficial.
