How to Grow
Choose a sunny, well-drained position and mix Yates Dynamic Lifter into the soil. Sow seed direct where the plants are to grow, in damp soil next to a trellis or support (up to 2 m). Do not water for a few days after sowing. Best results are achieved when soil temperature is consistently above 20°C.
Feed plants every fortnight with Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Snail & Slug Bait.
Avoid overwatering as seeds may rot before germinating if soil is too wet. These perennial beans will die down in autumn and re-emerge in spring.Yates seed is tested and proven. We will gladly replace any packet that does not perform to your satisfaction.
