With minimal effort and relatively little space, you can produce tremendous yields of beans from compact bush-type varieties.

This snap bean features smooth, round, meaty pods that are dark green and slightly blue in colour. They are delicious fresh, and unbeatable for canning and freezing. Available in both bush and pole types. Bush grows on shorter, self-supporting plants. Pick regularly when pods are plump.

Beans tolerate a wide range of soil types. Their best growth is in light, organic, well drained soil with a pH of about 6.5. Beans have a distinct dislike for cold, wet soils, so sow seed only after the soil has warmed to at least 16C (60F). To ensure a continuous harvest, sow bush-type varieties every 10 days until mid-July. Keep beans evenly watered, particularly when the plants are in flower and when production of the pods starts. Avoid the use of high nitrogen fertilizer. Nitrogen promotes excessive foliage. Avoid disturbing beans when leaves are damp to reduce the incidence of disease. Harvest as early as possible in the day.
