    How to Grow

    Bush Beans don't require a structure to climb on making them a little easier to manage plus faster to produce beans compared to their climbing counterparts. They like soil rich in organic matter but they are a legume so ensure nitrogen are not to high. Sow your beans direct in the garden and 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. Harvest beans when they are young and tender between 8-12cm long. Plant beans every 4 weeks for continuous supply. 

    Pests included Cutworm, Crows & White Fly. Use exclusion netting, and good soil health practices to minimise pest impact.

    Sow spring & summer direct into garden.

    Packet contains approx 24 seeds.

    Frost Tender

    Uses

    Eat beans whole either fresh or cooked. All beans are best eaten when young and string less, this is typically between 8-12cm in length.
