Plant 15cm (6") apart in rows 45cm (18") apart. Dwarf French beans can also be grown in large containers, use a good quality potting compost and keep well watered during the growing season. Feed with a liquid tomato fertiliser. Harvest the beans regularly to encourage further pod production. On Receipt - Remove the plants from the packaging immediately upon receipt. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. All the vegetable plants can be planted immediately into a moist soil in the garden, provided conditions are suitable. Once planted water well to settle the soil around the plants. Soil Preparation - Vegetable plants require a well drained soil in a sunny position that has ideally been dug in the autumn. Prior to planting lightly fork over the area removing any weeds that have grown, and break down any large lumps. Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore and rake into the surface. During the growing period keep the plants well watered in dry spells and keep weeds under control.
