Flowering Months Harvest Months
Cover young French bean plants with fleece to protect them from late frosts. Water dwarf beans regularly, particularly as the flowers develop, and provide a liquid feed every 14 days during mid-summer. Dwarf French Beans can be harvested from July to September. Pick the beans regularly and a little on the young side to ensure top quality and prolonged cropping.

Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, bright conditions until all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise dwarf French beans to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.

Grow dwarf bean plants in rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted garden compost to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Avoid using products that are high in nitrogen such as farmyard manure, as this may promote lush foliage instead of beans. Plant French beans at a distance of 22cm (9”) apart in staggered rows for the highest yields. Water the plants in well after planting.
