Climbing French Bean - Monte Gusto

  • Catalogue Code 1030-3205
  • Pack Contents: 120x French Bean Seeds

As tasty as it is ornamental, Monte Gusto has bright yellow fine pods which grow up to 11 inches (25cm) in length.  It produces big bundles of beans distributed around the whole of the plant.

This variety shows good resistance to common mosaic virus so you can rest assured you won’t need to troubleshoot this pesky disease.

We recommend you sow 3 seeds in a small pot in late spring. Simply fill a pot with compost specially formulated for young plants, to the top and make a deep depression in the centre of the pot with your finger. Pop the large seeds in the dent and cover. Water the surface of the pot.

Once the seeds germinate keep watering daily. When the seedlings have about two leaves leaves, remove all seedlings except the strongest one to grow on into plants you can transplant outside for handsome harvests.

Space plants 6in (15cm) apart when you transplant them outside. This climbing variety needs a structure to climb up so provide supports in the form of bamboo canes or trellis. 

How your seeds arrive

Your Climbing French bean Monte Gusto variety arrives to you as a well-sealed packet of 120 seeds with variety and cultural information on the front and the back of the packet.

This includes the best sowing time, benefits of growing the variety, harvests time, top tips and other handy bits of information to help you to grow your crop successfully and enjoyably.

If you need to wait until the advised time of sowing which is given on the packet check the ‘Best Before’ date given on the packet and keep the packet in a dry and cool place like a drawer in an unheated room or garage.
