Bean Plants

(4 items)

The bean family is truly diverse, with varieties coming in an array of shapes, sizes and colours. Many varieties will thrive in poor soils and some are even resistant to diseases. Choosing organic bean plants ensures that your crops will have the best possible start, with strong roots, and will establish quickly as the warmer weather sets in.

Climbing beans like French and runner need support. Bamboo canes are traditional and do the job well, but a good organic gardener will always check the source. Before erecting your canes, we recommend digging a trench in the space you are. . . Show More >

Climbing beans like French and runner need support. Bamboo canes are traditional and do the job well, but a good organic gardener will always check the source. Before erecting your canes, we recommend digging a trench in the space you are going to plant your beans – remembering their love of sun. Mix plenty of compost or soil improver into the trench and combine with the existing soil. It’s a good idea to plant bee and pollinator attracting plants nearby, as they will help to set the flowers. Beans enjoy an organic liquid feed, such as tomato and/or seaweed extract. The great thing about these crops is that they are very bountiful, simply pick fresh and keep picking! You’ll have more than you need, but they do freeze and that means you can enjoy them with a Sunday dinner in the winter months. Our organic gardening tip is to grow broad beans over the winter months, which will help to protect your soil and once finished, can be dug in to improve soil quality and structure.
