A medium to long term green manure, sow in Spring or from September to November for over-wintering. Provides both organic matter and nitrogen fixation.
Sow at 20 grams/sq.m. Generally frost hardy but may be affected during a particularly hard winter. Turn in before flowering.
Can be cut once and allowed to regrow a 2nd flush of leaf before digging in.
Deep roots will penetrate and break up heavy soils.
Please note: 2020 has been a bad year for supplies of Field Beans. Limited stock available.
Some packs may contain increased numbers of beans showing weevil holes, although this should not impact germination levels.
