Produces a heavy crop of flat, fleshy beans of superb quality. A variety that can be planted early or late and one that is resistant to rust disease.
Beans come in a number of varieties, but are largely categorised into two types: dwarf or climbing. Climbing beans need room to spread, so will need to be planted out in the garden. If you don’t have the space, look for dwarf varieties – they’re perfect for large pots.
The great thing about beans is that they are part of the legume family and can capture nitrogen from the atmosphere, so when your plants are done for the season, dig them out and add to the compost heap or dig them into the garden bed.
