One way of ensuring a supply of beans throughout the winter is by allowing the pods to grow to full maturity and then letting them dry out. It couldn’t be easier




August- October

Young plants can be started off in Rootrainers

Beans are a great vegetable for supplementing your winter store. Popping them in the freezer is one option but another way is to leave them to dry, something that requires little effort as they can be just left on the vine until the pods turn brown and the seeds start to peep out. Popular beans for drying include Borlotti white beans with streaks of pinkish-red), and cannellini (an Italian, white, kidney shaped bean), though if you find yourself with too many runner beans you can always leave these to dry too.
