How to Grow

Climbing beans as their name indicates need a structure for them to climb on. This can be anything from a wire fence, verandah or teepee made from tomato stakes, bamboo or even sturdy sticks. They like soil rich in organic matter but they are a legume so ensure nitrogen levels are not to high. Sow your seeds below the climbing structure to give the tendrils a easy job of latching on. Ensure you do not over water them during the germination stage as this may cause rotting. Once germinated provide a good mulch later around the plant. During the growing season you may need to assist the plant with latching onto your structure.

Pests included Cutworm, Crows, Small Brown Bean Bug & White Fly. Where needed use exclusion netting, neem, pyrethrum and good soil health practices to minimise pest impact.

Sow spring & summer direct into garden.
