Beans - Dwarf Mix

dwarf-bean-mix

Sow a rainbow of flavour and colour with this mix of 3 different coloured dwarf beans. Tender and crisp, the gold, royal purple and deep green pods turn a meal into a visual feast. Ideal for smaller gardens, this mix produces an abundant crop of colourful stringless pods.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Sow direct where they are to grow in well drained, damp soil. Cover with Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing. Best results are achieved when soil temperature is consistently above 20 degrees Celsius. Make successive sowings every few weeks.

Care

Grow in a sunny, well drained position. For best results prepare soil by digging in Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone and begin applying Yates® Thrive® Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food when flower buds form. Pick young beans regularly for maximum yield. Protect from snails and slugs.

Hints

Avoid overwatering, as seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Avoid sowing too early, or sowing into hard, compacted soil. If required, hill up soil around growing plants for support. Dwarf (bush) Beans do not require trellis to climb on, but if long tendrils appear (particularly during prolonged cloudy weather) trim these to maintain a bushy habit.
