Dwarf Bean - Polka

Polka is commonly grown in Eastern Europe where 'yellow' beans are hugely popular. They produce heavy crops of straight, succulent and tender pods. The prolific harvests are further improved by a beneficial tolerance to diseases such as Anthracnose and Halo Blight. Plants are pretty enough for the flower garden.

Sow indoors for surest results from April to May, 2.5cm deep into individual pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, before planting out 25cm apart, during May-June when frosts are over. Allow 45cm between rows. Or sow outdoors May-July for ease, where they are to crop, 5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Delay sowing if soil is cold or waterlogged. Sow two seeds together, 30cm between each position. Allow 45cm between rows. Thin to leave stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Harvest from June to October.
