Now is the time to be sowing your bean seeds if you would like to be harvesting home grown beans for Christmas.
I sowed these bean seeds on the 12th of October.
Not long after sowing the seeds, precisely 6 days, small sprouts will have started to emerge.
Now at exactly two weeks, all the seeds have sprouted and pushed out leaves. Everyday these beans are continuing to grow rapidly.
It wont be long now until they reach a height of 1.2 metres and start to show signs of produce.
So if you have never grown beans or seeds before now is the time to be doing it.
Give it a go and enjoy your home grown produce!
