Unwin's Borlotti Bean Seeds - Key Features

  • High crop yields
  • Good disease resistance

Sowing Time

Indoors: April - May

Sow individual seeds in 8cm (3in) pots of seed and potting compost. Keep the pots in a frost free greenhouse. Ensure the compost remains moist at all times - but not saturated. Gradually accustom the young plants to outside conditions for 2 - 3 weeks before planting them out to their cropping position from late May onwards when the danger of frost has passed. Allow 30cm (12in) between plants in the row.

Outdoors: May - June

Sow individual seeds 5cm (2in) deep and 8cm (3in) apart. Dwarf beans are usually sown in double rows with 30cm (12in) between each row. Each row then supports the other and require no further support. Dwarf bean seed is sensitive to cold, wet soils and will not germinate in unfavourable conditions, we therefore recommend that you do not sow outdoors before May.
