A superb variety producing very tasty, long string-less pods over a long period. Can be grown in a greenhouse for early and late production. A firm favourite with gardeners, they freeze well too. 

Sow April- June. Early sowings should be made in pots in the greenhouse to be planted out at the end of May or direct sow in the ground at the end of May. (Bean plants are frost tender)

Space plants about 20cm apart

Plants will need tall canes or a trellis to grow up. Water regularly when they get going. Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Once they get away though they won't be bothered by them.

Pick beans regularly. If you have too many they freeze really well
