Butter Bean (Dwarf)

$4.99

💗 All our seeds are grown organically in Australia -> What makes our seeds special? 💗

  • Golden tender long beans, buttery and delicious in texture. The glowing yellow pods look stunning in the garden silhouetted against the deep green leaves. A great variety for foodscaping. Tender stringless variety.
  • Produces early and prolifically. TIP: To keep plant producing prolifically through the season (1) pick as soon as beans reach full size (2) do not let the plant go to seed (i.e. the beans inside the pod start to bulge and the bean starts to get tough and dry out) – once the plant goes to seed, it thinks its work is done and will stop producing new pods.
  • Sow a new batch every month for a continuous supply over the warm months.
  • Size: This is a medium bean – grows to around 60cm tall. It will need a short stake or trellis for support. Great in large pots or grow bags.
  • Sowing: Sow seed indoors in early spring in individual punnets and plant out once the risk of frost has passed in your area. Do not soak bean seed as this risks rotting – plant into damp seed raising mix and don’t water again until the soil feels dry. Check out our corn seed sowing guide for a free and easy trick for sowing into individual punnets. Or sow direct in garden beds in late spring and summer, once the risk of frost has passed in your area.
  • Planting: Grows well in full sun and part-shade. Space seeds around 20cm apart.  Beans fix nitrogen from the atmosphere so don’t need a lot of fertiliser added, but do appreciate a soil enriched with compost, worm castings and gentle manures (cow, sheep, horse).

Please note seeds can be shipped across Australia, but due to quarantine restrictions we cannot ship seed to WA or Tasmania.
