Oh la la…dwarf French beans

If you’re a beginner to the game of grow your own and you’d like to try growing beans then these are the ones to go for.

Not only do they take up very little space (great for the urban gardeners with pots on patios or balconies), but they are also good all summer long for producing beans for use in salads and to compliment other dishes.

You do need to pick them regularly for them to keep on cropping. You also need to protect them from frosts so either sow the seeds indoors in pots in mid-spring and then transplant them outdoors when the risk of frost has passed or sow them directly into the ground, or a large pot, in the early summer. They are easy to care for. They require plenty of water in dry weather and to be weed free. Preferably grow them in a sunny spot.
