legume family Phaseolus vulgaris


Grey country bean Climbing beans / Pole beans

Old heirloom variety with robust and vigorous plants. The beans are harvested green, and taste best when steamed.

Sow from mid-May to the beginning of June at a distance of 60 cm. Place about 4 beans 2 cm deep in a circle pattern. “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.
