Thompson & Morgan Dwarf Bean Purple Teepee 50 Seed

£3.69

Dwarf Bean - Purple Teepee

At last, a purple podded bean which bears its pods above the main foliage. This makes picking easier and ensures improved cropping of long, straight pods with less soil splashing. Purple Teepee produces pods that are approximately 15cm long, stringless and slender with that intangible but appreciated zing to the flavour that many vegetable growers agree only comes to the purple podded types. The pods are quick maturing and turn brilliant emerald green in boiling water. For an early crop, sow seeds in heat in mid spring 6 weeks before the last expected frost in your area. Sow seeds individually in 7.5cm pots at 18-21C. Otherwise sow seeds outdoors during late spring when the soil is warm and after all danger of frost. They are sensitive to low soil temperatures and sowing should be delayed until the soil has warmed up. Sow two seeds 5cm deep at 23cm intervals in rows 46-60cm apart in good garden soil raked to a fine tilth. Harvest regularly while the pods are still young for the best crops.
