Pea & Bean Seeds


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 'Mascotte'

Phaseolus vulgaris, French Bean, Green Bean, Bush Bean

Broad Bean 'Oscar'

Vicia faba, Fava Bean

  • The smallest Broad Bean - perfect for freezing
  • Upright pods for easy picking
  • Ideal for containers and small spaces

.A favourite broad bean with commercial growers for its uniformity and ease of picking and processing. The small but flavoursome beans are the best option for freezer storage, being far less prone to discolouring than larger varieties. We recommend growing Broad Bean Oscar alongside Marrowfat Pea Onward to produce your own pea and bean freezer mix for long term storage.

Oscar pods can also be picked before filling out and treated as a mangetout pea, but to get the most from your broad bean crop allow pods to fill and pick whilst young and tender. Compact plants with upright pods grow well in patio containers and stand well in open ground with no supports. Height: 90cm (36in)

Climbing Bean 'Mamba'

French Bean, Green Bean

  • Double the yields of customer favourite Cobra
  • Uniform pods reach 15cm+
  • Perfect for patio pots

New varieties really have to hold their own before we champion them over longstanding customer favourites. When we saw the cropping potential of Climbing Bean Mamba we knew we were on to a future favourite!

Our Mamba trial crops have consistently produced double the yield of Cobra, with no reduction in flavour or pod quality. Mamba’s mid-green, stringless pods are larger, more uniform and carried in clusters for easy picking. Plants are slightly less vigorous than Cobra, but this is a bonus - growth is more manageable, taking up less space, and the plants will perform better in large patio pots than most other varieties. Height: 1.8m (6’).
