Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This evergreen twining climber is a close relative to the runner bean. Grown for its pendants of twisted flowers, like coiled snail shells, up to 5cm (2") across. The fascinating summer flowers are followed by cylindrical green fruits in late autumn. Requiring a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F), Vigna is best grown in a heated greenhouse or conservatory. Alternatively, grow in patio containers that can be moved indoors for the winter. Height: 6m (20'). Spread: 2m (6'). Supplied in 9cm pots.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Position container grown plants on a sunny patio from May to October. Return them to a bright warm greenhouse for the winter at a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F). Prune lightly after flowering to contain the plant within its allocated space.
Grow the snail flower plant in a warm conservatory, heated greenhouse, or patio container. Plant in containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Provide the twining stems with an appropriate support, such as a climbing frame, trellis or horizontal wires attached to walls. Alternatively grow snail flowers outdoors as an annual. Plant in sunny, well drained borders, against a sheltered fence or wall.
