Description

Hardier than most French beans, this is the best speedy one we've tried. It's quick to mature in 60 days. Sow in early spring and again in August, and it will crop to the end of October. Sow in succession before and after French Bean 'Masterpiece', for the middle season.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Protect with fleece if the weather turns cold after planting. Keep plants well-watered, especially during dry spells, a mulch of compost or well-rotted manure will help the soil retain moisture and suppress weed growth.
