French beans are delicious and easy to grow in home gardens. 1 Seeds packet contains approximately 35 seeds.
French beans are the unripe, young fruit and protective pods of various cultivars of the common bean. Immature or young pods of the runner bean, yard long bean, and hyacinth bean are used in a similar way.
How to Grow?
- Choose a well-drained, sunny spot. Make sure it's sheltered though, as French beans can be vulnerable to chilly winds.
- If you've opted for a climbing variety, bear in mind that the plants will need supporting. Tall climbers will cast a shadow over whatever's planted next to them, so site your bean plants carefully.
- They prefer to grow in moist, fertile soil in a sheltered spot away from strong winds, but can also be grown successfully in pots.
- They prefer a light soil, neutral to slightly acid.
