Beans


Beans are a tender, warm season plant. When eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, beans are an excellent source of vitamins A & C and dietary fibre. CULTURE: Warm temperatures are necessary for beans to germinate and set flowers. SOIL: Beans prefer loam soil with moderate amounts of organic matter. FERTILITY: Do not fertilize beans or add manure the year of sowing. Excessive fertilizing will make for large plants with little pod set. GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 18-26C. Sow in warm, well-drained soil. Sowing below recommended temperature will result in poor germination. Do not soak your seeds before planting. SPACING: Sow seeds 2cm/3/4” deep 5-10cm/2-4” apart.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
