Product details

How

Sow 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. Make successive sowings every few weeks.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position. Enrich soil before sowing with Yates Dynamic lifter. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser. Protect from snails and slugs.

Hint

Avoid overwatering, as seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Avoid sowing too early, or sowing into hard, compacted soil. If required, hill up soil around growing plants for support. Dwarf (bush) beans do not require a trellis to climb on, but if long tendrils appear (particularly during prolonged cloudy weather) trim these to maintain a bushy habit.

Storage

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