A premier variety with attractive white blossoms, which remain undisturbed by the birds, meaning extra cropping power! Also performs well in warmer temperatures. The long, straight, mid-green pods are both smooth and stringless.
Sow mid-April indoors for transplanting. Sow seed, 5cm (2in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays of good, free-draining, seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 18-21°C (65-70°F) until after germination. Can also be sown May to early July direct outdoors once the soil has warmed, sow 15cm (6in ) apart, 5cm (2in) deep and in rows 45cm (18in) apart.
Gradually acclimatise indoor plants to outdoor conditions for a few days efore planting out after risk of frost, against canes or netting. Hoe regularly and keep well watered. Mulch during dry periods and give a liquid fertiliser every 2 weeks.
