Beans

Beans are an almost perfect food, as they form a complete protein when eaten with grains and are high in fibre, iron and essential minerals. Easy to grow, beans will benefit your garden as they possess the unique ability to convert nitrogen from the air into a form usable by plants. This process can be accelerated and yields increased with an application of Garden Legume Inoculant. Growing Tips: Plant beans in well-drained soil after all danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds 2.5cm (1") deep, 8 per foot, in rows 50cm (20") apart. For a continual harvest of fresh beans, plant new rows every 10 days until mid-July. An application of Garden Legume Inoculant will offer increased yields. Avoid contact with bean plants when they are damp to prevent the spread of fungal diseases.
