Climbing French Bean “Blue Lake”

Leave a comment

This is a record of how long this particular set of seeds took to germinate and how they looked at various stages from first appearance to the development of the first set of true leaves and beyond. I hope this will prove useful.

 Variety: Blue Lake
Sown indoors: 29th March 2013
First Seedling: 4th April 2013
Germination: 6 days

I grow a climbing variety of French Bean because they usually produce a bountiful supply of beans which are a favourite of us all. Try as I might, I can not get good results from the dwarf varieties.
