WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings in individual pots or modules in glasshouse or cold frame. Alternatively, sown outside in early May, sow two seeds 5cm (2″) deep and 20cm (8″) apart with 60cm (24″) between rows outside.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Glasshouse seedlings should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the spacings above with a support cane at each planting station. Reduce outside sowings to single plants. Circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam.
The beans can be harvested like a flageolet type and cooked or be left to ripen and stored as an attractive winter dry bean. NUTRITIONAL VALUE A good source of vitamins A, K and folic acid.
