Dwarf Bean - Tendergreen
Tendergreen matures early and is productive over a long season. It is of great value for fresh use or freezing. The pods are fleshy, meaty, stringless, fibreless and snap cleanly.
For an early crop sow seeds in heat from March to April, roughly 6 weeks before the last expected frost. Sow individually in 7.5cm pots at 18-21C. Otherwise sow seeds outdoors in succession from mid April to mid July after all danger of frost. Sensitive to low soil temperatures, so delay sowing until the soil has warmed up. Sow 7.5cm apart in rows 5cm deep and 45cm apart. Thin out or transplant to 15cm apart. Hoe regularly and keep well-watered and mulched in dry spells. Harvest regularly while the pods are still young for the best crops.
