Climbing French bean – Blauhilde (Organic)

£3.10

A stringless, climbing French bean from Germany producing lots of very dark purple pods that turn green when cooked. We like to grow a variety of different colour beans as they are such a versatile crop. Blauhilde can be grown outside or indoors and makes an excellent market garden variety as it’s productive, disease resistant and exquisite in taste.

When to sow: May – June

Spacing: 65 x 40cm

Climbing French Beans tips: Direct sow from May until the beginning of June, when the soil has warmed up. If sown when the soil is too cold and/or wet the beans may rot. We recommend building the climbing structure first (poles distanced 65cm between rows and 40cm within the row) and then planting four beans at the base of each pole 4cm deep. This way you will know exactly where the beans have been planted and also you will not damage the roots when building the structure.
