Poor spring beans

West Sussex barometer grower Tim Lock combined his Quattro spring beans this week, which had disappointing yields.

“The yield was disastrous. They went in on wet light soil and then dried out completely. They were short and not very good at all. Id rather not say wheat they yielded.”

He says the Clipper winter beans for seed on heavier land have more potential. He will combine these when the weather dries out.
