A dwarf compact french bean with good ground clearance. Yellow bean!

We offer a range of dwarf and climbing French beans! Dwarf French beans require no support! It can be planted in multiple rows and close together (ignore the spacing if push comes to shove!) pots, gardens or the allotment makes no difference for the dwarf bean.

Climbing French beans requires some support to climb up just like runner beans or peas. Provide bean poles or jute netting and let them grow and thrive. These require more space than dwarf beans and although you can grow 2 or 3 in a pot they are best planted in the ground.

These beans are super productive and will continue to produce as long as you keep picking

Sowing French beans

Start in pots or modules and transplant to the final growing position once sprouted. Depending on what French bean seed you are sowing will depend if you need support or not.
