Field Beans are an excellent overwintering variety of green manure, they have deep roots which help break up the soil ready for the spring. They are very winter hardy, unless the winter is very harsh and store nitrogen in the root nodules which provides an excellent free plant feed in the spring. A perfect green manure to grow if your growing cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts and any other green leafy crops. Field Beans germinate easily in the cooler weather from September to early November but can be sown earlier.
