These fleshy, stringless and flavoursome beans have snap-fresh round, dark green pods (with occasional purple flecks) that can grow up to 16cm. A mid to late season, al-time favourite.
Sow direct where they are to grow in well drained, damp soil. Cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing. Best results are achieved when soil temperature is consistently above 20 degrees Celsius. Make successive sowings every few weeks.
Grow in a Sunny, well-drained position. Prepare soil by adding Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone and begin applying Yates Thrive soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food when flower buds form. Pick young beans regularly for maximum yield. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem. Control leaf blight with Bravo, aphids and white fly with Naturw's Way Pyrethrum. Water well in dry conditions.
Great companion plant for carrots, cucumber, cauliflower, beetroot, parsley, parsnip, lettuce & cabbage. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Avoid sowing too early, or sowing into hard, compacted soil. If required, hill up soil around growing plants for support. Dwarf (bush) beans do not require trellis to climb on, but if long tendrils appear, (particularly during prolonged cloudy weather) trim these to maintain bushy habit.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
