people love beautiful fresh vegetables full of goodness and

Dwarf Beans are a great crop to grow at home as they take
up very little space, are very productive and dont need
Dwarf Beans flourish in a full sun position and need a sweet
soil. Start by adding some Dolomite to the soil and also dig
in Searles® Real Compost. Beans do not like a very rich soil
as they produce their own nitrogen, so do not add fertilisers
or manures that are high in nitrogen.
Plant the seeds straight into the soil about one foot apart
and 3-5cm deep. Always be sure to check on the packet for
the correct spacing and depth for the particular variety of
dwarf bean you are growing.
FERTILISING FOR A BUMPER CROP
To produce a bumper crop of beans liquid feed with Searles
Potash every two weeks. Searles® Liquid Potash contains some
phosphorus and a whole lot of potassium. It does not contain
any nitrogen. This is important, as too much nitrogen will
produce lots of leaves and little beans. However, the high
potassium (Potash) content will promote more flowers and most
importantly, loads of beautiful crisp beans.
Now after about ten weeks, youll be picking an abundance
of fresh crisp beans, and the great thing is that they will
continue to bear more beans for weeks to come.
