Useful/additional information Sow seeds from early autumn to late winter in an open sunny site preferably on ground which has been manured for a previous crop. Sow in double rows 7cm (2in.) deep, 23cm (9in.) apart in the row. The double rows should be spaced 23cm (9in.) apart and a distance of 40-60cm (18-24in.) should be left before the next set of double rows.Hoe regularly and cut off the tops of the plants as soon as four clusters of bloom are showing. Harvest the beans when the pods are well filled and the seed still soft. Pinch out the tips of the plants when in full flower to help the pods swell and to reduce infestation by blackfly.
