Product details

How

Sow beside trellis or support (up to 2m) direct where they are to grow in well drained, damp soil . Cover with Yates 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.

Care

Grow in a sunny, well drained position. For best results prepare soil by digging in Yates 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.

Hint

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. Position trellis running north to south for maximum sunlight.

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
