GROWING DWARF BEANS

Dwarf beans, also known as green beans, bush beans or French beans, are one of the most popular warm-season vegetables grown at home. These beans are low-growing and can be spaced closely together in rows.

PLANTING:

Sow your dwarf green been seeds in well-prepared rows.  Space the seeds 70–100mm apart and about 40–50mm deep. If you’re looking to ensure a prolonged harvesting period, sow new seeds every three weeks.

MAINTENANCE:

Because of the bean’s short growing period, they require relatively little attention. Watering with liquid manure every two weeks will ensure a longer picking period and superior quality beans. Water your beans well during the flowering period.

HARVEST:

Depending on the climate and the hybrid grown, pods are ready to be picked 7–10 weeks after sowing.
