Seeds of Scotland

Climbing French Bean - Carters Polish


Phaseolus vulgaris - approximately 50 seeds.


A sturdy climbing french or 'pole' bean recommended to us by Pippa at Beans and Herbs for growing in Scotland. This variety "Does very well whatever kind of UK summer!". Beautiful purple flowers and green pods with striking dark purple streaks, this bean can be eaten fresh or dried.




Growing Info

Climbing French beans will need support or something to grow up.  Don't be tempted to sow too early as beans sown slightly later will often catch up and be much healthier.  Sow in trays, pots or root trainers in May and transplant out after the risk of frost has passed.  

If sowing direct, do so in late May/early June, after the risk of frost has passed. 

French Beans will do best when grown undercover in many parts of Scotland, however they will also do well outside in a sheltered sunny spot.


All seeds are posted via Royal Mail 1st Class at a flat rate of £3.00. Please note, due to legislation covering inspection and sale of seeds, we can only post to Scotland, England and Wales.
