French Bean 'Cobra' Readily available as Organic seed
Grow a mixture of different runner beans and add their beautiful edible flowers to summer salads.
APRIL is really the KEY month for us home growers; there's still just enough time to get tomatoes sown, but equally, thoughts are turning to the big, bumper, high summer crops that fill (and overfill!) our beds until the autumn..
"This week, I have been mostly sowing.."
Fine bean 'Sultana' & 'Cobra' - both high quality, straight & fine; pencil-podded and high yielding. Also Neckargold' from Franchi
Runner bean'Enorma' (red flowered) & White Lady. Remember you can EATtheflowers so grow both colours for beauty in the border and on the plate
Borlotti bean (climbing) 'Firetongue' from Franchi Seeds. I do LOVE Franchi seeds and use them wherever possible. Why?
Dwarf bean 'Safari' which is a rather tender plant, but a superlative dwarf bean for kitchen use. The 'chef's choice' of the fine beans.
Beautiful bean seeds
Tomato 'Sungold' emerging
