Cosse Violette have beautiful deep purple pods which turn dark green on cooking. They have a fine flavour and harvests over a long period in either glasshouse or out in the open. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported much in the same way runner beans are.

WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings can be made underglass at a temperature of 16°C, sow 3 seeds per 8cm (3in) pot filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm(8in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) apart.

Seedlings sown underglass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Provide support by canes or netting for plants to climb. Water regularly during dry weather.
