Dwarf French Bean - Faraday
This is one of the best new dwarf french bean varieties available. Faraday produces excellent, uniform, pencil pods, which are 6-8mm in diameter and 13-15cm long. The pods are straight and have a good colour. This is a must for any bean grower.
Sow from April to June. Early sowings can be made underglass at a temperature of 16°C, sow into 8cm (3in) pots or modular trays filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm(8in) apart with rows spaced 45cm (18in) apart. Seedlings sown underglass 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. The beans will be ready to harvest from July to September.
