Wine country bean Climbing beans / Pole beans

Wine country beans are a classic of Swiss garden culture. It grows vigorously giving rise to dark pink flowers. It also produces a high yield. The long sleeves are slightly speckled purple as if drops of wine stained them. You will be able to harvest these from mid-July to October. They do great for deep freezing and dehydrating.

Sow from mid-May to the beginning of June at a distance of 60 cm. Place about 6–7 beans 2 cm deep in a circle pattern. As they say, “Beans must hear the bells ringing.” So do not sow them too deep. Stick a 2.5 m stake in the circle to give the beans a climbing trail for their tendrils. They respond well to ample compost. Gardener Tip: Soak seeds for 12 hours in lukewarm chamomile tea before sowing.
