Sowing and growing

Germination is tough in cold or rainy weather, so give these seeds a head start indoors. Mix together equal parts MM-Mix and fine vermiculite, plant your seeds in a pot, and put your pots in the windowsill. 
As soon as you see the first seedings, transfer them to their final home outside. Choose a patch at the back of your garden box or an MM-Mini.  
Once the plants make it past the first weeks, they will keep growing easily.
The plants grow to 50-70 cm tall, so build them a mini trellis for some extra support. You can make one from wire fencing in a few minutes. 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app. 

How do you use bush beans?

Harvest the beans when they are about 10 cm long: that's when they are tastiest. 

Always cook your bush beans. Don't eat them raw. 

Serve as a side dish or add them to salads, stir fries, and soups.
