Beans Dwarf 'Freezer Slims'

This heavy cropping variety produces extra long rather flat pods that are ideal for angle slicing and freezing. Quality holds well in maturity, allowing good numbers at each picking for freezer preparation.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Warm soils are essential for beans. Sow directly into garden previously worked with Yates Hauraki Peat to improve drainage. Moisten soil at sowing but do not water until seedlings appear. Add Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser before planting.

Care

Give regular applications of Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser during growth. Protect emerging seedlings from slugs and snails with Yates Blitzem. Control leaf blight with Gravo; aphids and white fly with Target. Water well in dry conditions.

Caution: Seed is treated to minimise fungus attack when planted. Do not eat seed or feed to animals.
