    Hi I grew french bean sultana last year and have sown some more for this year. It was an excellent cropper last year, got loads of it. Because I don't have huge amounts of space, I grew mine in a ready made bean grow bag an am going to do the same this year. Have put plenty of manure in with the compost and they need regular watering. Also found the slugs loved them too.
