Dwarf beans are a compact, high yielding variety, fantastic for planting in small spaces.

  • Dwarf beans can be grown in anything, as long as they are planted into premium potting mix and kept in a sunny position
  • They can be overplanted, meaning you can plant a few together as long as there is enough soil around their roots and air movement between the foliage.
  • These plants have a head start on seeds or seedlings and will be ready to harvest in about 8-10 weeks.
  • Harvestthe beans when they’re about 10-15 cm long. The more you harvest when they are tender and young, the more the plants will produce.
  • Dwarf beans are part of the Crops in Pots range at Swan Valley Nursery.
