New to 2016. Colourful climbing variety of mange-tout with attractive purple flowers, yellow pods and yellow/red tinged leaf nodes. Harvest in late summer to use raw in salads on account of their sweetness or steamed for stir fries or as an accompaniment for fish dishes.
Provide support in the way of trellis, wig-wams or cane-structures. If growing multiple plants, station young plants about 25-30cm (10-12in) apart to reduce competition and ensure greater harvests.
Once transplanted water well in mornings or evenings while they establish; if the weather is warm and dry, water twice a day mornings and evenings.
As a leguminous plant, ‘Golden Sweet’ will introduce nitrogen into the soil on account of its nitrogen-fixing nodules. Therefore it provides the soil naturally with a bank of nitrogen-rich compounds, perfect for growing green leafy crops the following year such as spinach, cabbages and lettuce.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
