Dwarf french beans

Sam50Sam50 Posts: 55

I started my dwarf french beans off around 3.5 weeks ago. 

As you know they grow very quick and the roots are very healthy in pot, outgrowing it.

should I repot in larger container? 

General advice in when to plant out etc would be great. Have started to harden off. 

It is my first time growing veggies etc.

    can put them out now but make sure you have some fleece or similar just in case of late frosts,i use large clear plastic pop bottles cut in half to make individual cloches,hope this helps,ps use slug pellets or do night checks if growing organic.

    yes leave the caps on and if the bottles are big enough you can get two from one bottle,don't forget to take them off in good weather so not to make them sweat and get stressed
