Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!

The fascinating summer flowers are followed by cylindrical green fruits in late autumn. Requiring a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F), Vigna caracalla is best grown in patio containers that can be moved indoors to a heated greenhouse or conservatory for the winter. Alternatively, grow snail vines outdoors as an annual. Height: 6m (20'). Spread: 2m (6'). More info
