story: a delightful cream coloured bean with red markings, the borlotti is a late summer favourite.
when to sow: plant out pot-raised beans in late may and early june or sow directly from mid-may until july.
requirements: well draining soil, can be grown in pots.
harvesting: beans are ready to pick from late summer.
please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
