Sow beside a trellis or support (up to 2m) direct where they are to grow in well drained, damp soil. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing. Best results are achieved when soil temperature is consistently above 20 degrees Celsius.
Select a sunny, well-drained position. Enrich soil before sowing with Yates Dynamic Lifter. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser. Protect from snails and slugs.
Pods are best picked when young and slender, at around 30cm long. Pods grow fast and should be picked at least every few days to keep the vines forming new pods.
