The climbing bean is one of the best choices for anyone starting their vegie patch: they are easy to grow from seed, suffer from few pests and diseases and are delicious and nutritious!
The climbing bean is a stringless, pencil-shaped beans which will produce a fine crop of tender, tasty beans. The climbing bean should be planted in spring and summer for best results. Beans (excluding broad beans) have subtropical origins and shouldn’t be sown until the soil has warmed and there is no danger of frosts.
They are legumes and can capture their own nitrogen from the atmosphere, so they don’t need very much fertiliser. Water the bed well in the afternoon and sow the next morning while the soil’s still moist. Unless it’s very hot and windy, the bed shouldn’t need watering again until after the seedlings have emerged. Bean seeds rot easily in wet spots, especially if the soil is still cold.
When to plant: Plant the Climbing Bean seeds in Spring and Summer.
How to grow: Sow bean seeds spring and summer, all year round in warm northern areas, 25mm (1in) deep in dark damp soil-avoid watering for a day or two afterwards. Sow 10-15cm (4-6in) apart allowing 50-60cmbetween rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed and protect plants from wind. Plant in 1-3m (3-10ft) rows and remove weeds regularly. Keep the roots cool, a mulch of garden compost will help considerably. Water well in dry weather. Support if grown as pole beans, support with canes, netting or bean frames. Grown as ground beans they don’t require any support but their size should be contained by regularly pinching out growing tips when shoots are 20-30cm (9-12in) long.
Harvest: Summer and Autumn. Climbing beans are well worth growing because they produce heavy crops over a long period and their verticality means they take up little room in the garden. Make sure that some sort of climbing support is in place before sowing. DT Brown sources the very best seeds and garden products from across the world.
