Advice please for my French Beans

Hello all. Me again!
I sowed some French Beans. Dwarf variety I think.
I sowed into a deep oblong container 4 weeks ago.
Nothing has happened.
How long does it take to germinate and begin to grow.

Thanks gang.

They should be coming up by now - how old were the seeds?

I brought them in a well known orange hardware store. I had them in my closet for about 6 months before I planted out

This might be a silly question, but have you been watering them?

Hi Ruth.
I’ve been using water from my water butt.
This has run out so I’ve been using tap water.

Odd… beans are usually really quick &:easy to germinate… I’d start again, if I were you- it’s not too late.


I think the dam pigeons got to them.
Thanks for the tips Ruth :blush::+1:
