Planting Advice

Sow 25mm deep in dark damp soil and 10-15cm apart. Germination is slightly slower than other beans and plants can remain fairly small until hot weather arrives. Remove weeds regularly and water well during dry periods. 

Easy to sow in most cultivated soils and needs a sunny position. Feed the soil with a general fertiliser shortly before sowing. Snake Beans should be grown on a fence or trellis. Seedlings emerge 10-21 days. Harvest regularly to prolong yields.

Watering needs

Water soil well during dry periods.
