Sowing/Planting and Flowering/Harvesting Guide


Key       Sow Indoors       Sow/Plant Outside       Flowers/Harvest

Sow indoors for surest results April-May, 2.5cm (1") deep into individual pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 25cm (10") apart, during May-June when frosts are over. Allow 45cm (18") between rows. Or sow outdoors April-June for ease, where they are to crop, 5cm (2") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Delay sowing if soil is cold or waterlogged. Sow two seeds together, 30cm (1') between each position. Allow 45cm (18") between rows. Thin to leave stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. For the earliest crops, sow in April and protect with cloches, once planted out, until pods form. The crop is ready once the leaves have fallen off. Pods can remain on the plant until required or shell and store in an airtight container. Beans should be cooked. Harvest: August-November.
Beans must be thoroughly cooked before eating. Soak for 12 hours before cooking. Drain, bring to the boil, then simmer for 1-2 hours.
