An excellent choice for adding colour to the vegetable plot as well as on the plate. Height: 180cm (70"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Companion planting: Try growing French beans with Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.

Gradually acclimatise plug plants to outdoor conditions over 7 – 10 days before planting French beans outdoors in rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun with protection from strong winds.
Plant Climbing beans in rows that are 60cm (24") apart, or where space is limited, try growing climbing beans onto a wigwam structure. Climbing beans require support from garden canes, strings or netting which should be put in place at the time of planting.
When growing beans, hoe between plants often and water regularly. Provide a compost mulch around the base of bean plants to combat dry periods. For the best crops harvest beans regularly while the pods are still young.
Culinary note: Suitable for freezing. Caution: Cook climbing beans before eating to avoid discomfort.
