Growing your own fruit and vegetables is extremely rewarding and this top-quality variety of French Bean, 'Ferrari' will give you great crops of slender, straight, and stringless round pods. They are very easy to grow and have a great resistance to disease making them a perfect choice for gardeners of all levels. Because they are a dwarf variety of bean, they are perfect for planting in containers, beds and borders and will produce bushy and compact plants that won't need staking. These delicious vegetables have a rich green colour and are fast growing, producing beautiful flowers that are quickly followed by the pods. Regular sowings every couple of weeks or so will extend the cropping season through to autumn. For best results, grow in a sunny, sheltered position. Delivered as pack of approx. 100 seeds.

Care Guide

How to grow Dwarf French Beans

  • Sow indoors for surest results, from April to May, 2.5cm (1in) deep into individual pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20C (60-68F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 30cm (12in) apart, when frosts are over. Allow 45cm (18in) between rows.
  • Or sow outdoors, from May to July, where they are to crop, 5cm (2in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil that has already been watered. Delay sowing if soil is cold or waterlogged. Sow 2 seeds together, 30cm (12in) between each position. Allow 45cm (18in) between rows. Thin to leave stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Pick beans regularly to encourage further cropping.
  • For the earliest crops, sow in April, protect with cloches once planted out, until pods form.
