Dwarf French Bean Tendergreen are also known as the 'ground bean', Tendergreen is a splendid heavy-cropping, tasty variety for open ground growing or starting under cloches. Being both dwarf in habit and self supporting this is the perfect variety for those who don't want the bother of putting up tall netting or similar structures as required for Climbing French Beans. 

 

The pale green pods often display distinct purple markings (which disappear on cooking) and are virtually stringless. Flavour is excellent and they have a lovely crunch when eaten raw - they freeze really well too.

 

Dwarf Bean 'Tendergreen' is early to mature and crops well over a long season. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Sowing:

French beans are sub-tropical in origin and therefore highly susceptible to frost damage. If a late frost does catch seedlings the only option is to remove them and re-sow. Germination rates for all French beans are about 80% therefore sow seeds approximately every 15cm, in 5cm deep pre-watered drills. When the seedlings emerge, thin them out to about 1

Handy Tip: 

  • A good tip is to sow two seeds in the last position on each row, meaning you have additional seedlings to fill in any gaps. A second tip, is don't pre-soak the beans as this encourages pest attack and reduces germination rates.
  • Nutritional Value A good source of Pro-vitamin A, Vitamin K and Folic acid.
  • Keep well watered and weeded (both tasks can be reduced by surrounding the plants with an organic mulch).
  • Dwarf French beans can manage with short bamboo poles or sticks to scramble up

Companion Plants: Potato, Cucumber, Maize, Strawberry, Celery, Summer Savory. Avoid Onion

Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
