Dwarf French Bean - Safari
Safari is a late maturing type with a strong, vigorous plant habit. It produces very fine pods which are carried high on the bush. The pods are round, stringless, straight and dark green, being about 12cm in length. Safari is sometimes known as Kenyan Beans and have a high level of disease resistance.
Sow from April to June. Early sowings can be made under glass at a temperature of 16°C. Sow into 8cm pots or modular trays filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm apart with rows spaced 45cm apart. Seedlings sown under glass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Direct sown seedlings can be thinned out as required. Water regularly during dry weather. Ready to harvest from July to September.
