Phaseolus vulgaris added to wheelbarrow

Phaseolus vulgaris (Dwarf French Bean) producing prolific crops over a long season of tender, stingless beans with an excellent flavour, delicious eaten fresh, but also excellent for freezing. Little support is needed for the plants which grow only 45cm high by 30cm.

Protect plants from frost but harden off by leaving outside in the daytime. Plant out, when all danger of frost has passed, in rich, fertile well-drained soil, in a sunny spot, sheltered from strong winds. Plant 20cm apart in rows 45cm apart. Protect young plants from slugs. The plants are self-supporting, but the provision of short twiggy sticks makes picking easier and keeps the lowest beans off the ground. Keep the plants well watered in dry periods. Mulch to preserve moisture in June. Begin picking the beans when they are about 10cm long.

Plant outdoors from April to July and harvest from July to October.
