Field Beans as Green Manure

Green Manure Field Beans are of the greatest value when overwintered.

They can be cut once and allowed to re-grow to produce second flush of foliage before digging in.

Dig in any time up to flowering. Fixes Nitrogen, it will not tolerate drought conditions and prefers heavier soil.

Sow September to October for over-wintering.

This is why I sowed them not to eat but to cover the earth and stop weeds growing
