Sow and grow butter beans

Because germination is difficult in even cold or rainy weather, we do this indoors on the windowsill: in a mixture of half MM mix and half fine pre-sowing vermiculite.

As soon as you see the first greenery, scoop the seedlings out of the pot and move them to their final place outside: a box at the back of your vegetable garden box or in a Planty.

Once the plants have passed the infant stage, they grow without any problems.

9 plants fit in a 30x30 cm box. The plants grow to a height of 40-50 cm, so place a rack of coarse garden mesh over the section as they grow to give them support.

The step-by-step sowing and growing instructions for Butter Beans can be found in the Easy Vegetable Garden app.
