Beans – Purple Dwarf

Purple Dwarf bush beans produce long purple beans that go green when cooked.

Beans are best sown direct and do not like to be transplanted. An easy crop to grow, bush beans enjoy full sun, even moisture and well-drained soil. Will tolerate part shade although will have reduced yield. For successive cropping, sow more seeds when beans start to flower. Regular harvesting will increase yield.

Good companion plants – sweet corn, lettuce, carrots, dill, brassicas, beets, cucumbers and zucchini
