Thompson & Morgan Dwarf Bean Boston 100 Seed

£2.99

Dwarf Bean - Boston

Boston produces heavy cropping, dark green, straight, round pods 15cm long on sturdy upright plants, over a long period. The beans have an excellent flavour and good pod colour; ideal for freezing. The sturdy upright plants reach the height of 45cm and prefers rich, moist soil in an open sunny situation.

For early crops under glass, sow seeds in heat from February onwards. Sow mid-April in pots indoors to plant outdoors late May or sow early May-July outdoors. Sow seeds individually in 7.5cm pots at 18-21C from mid-April for transplanting outdoors after frost risk has passed. Alternatively sow seeds direct outdoors in warm soil from late May to late July, although germination can be erratic in cold, wet soils. Sow 2 or 3 seeds 5cm deep, allowing 20cm between each group of seeds and 45cm between rows with no need to thin out. Use cloches to aid establishment of earliest sowings. Hoe regularly and keep well-watered and mulched during dry periods. Harvest regularly whilst young for highest yields and to extend the season.
