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 'Speedy'
Phaseolus vulgaris, French Bean, Green Bean, Bush Bean
Aptly named dwarf French Bean 'Speedy' is one of the earliest and quickest beans to produce pods to pick. This productive variety produces good yields of fleshy, mid-green pods, approximately 14cm (6") long from July onwards that have an excellent flavour. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Companion planting: Try growing French beans with Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.
