Last date for spring beans

CAN you please tell me the latest realistic sowing date for spring beans? They would be drilled properly as opposed to scattered/ploughed/or cultivated.

    MID-MAY is the accepted cut -off date for peas and beans.

    The Processors and Growers Research Organisation have very useful website www.pgro.co.uk where you can find more information.
