Peas and beans are easy to grow and great for children too. Sowing in succession (every few weeks) means you'll have a continuous crop throughout the summer. Try growing sweet peas next to your runner beans to improve pollination.
Dwarf Bean 'Bellini'
Phaseolus vulgaris, French Bean, Green Bean, Bush Bean
Red flowers are followed by slender, stringless green pods that are produced on sturdy, upright plants. Dwarf Bean 'Bellini' produces its crop high on the stems making easier picking and better quality pods as they don't touch the soil surface. A superb compact variety that can even be grown in containers and window boxes where space is at a premium. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Companion planting: Try growing French beans with Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.
