dwarf french beans

Lanarkshire, Scotland Sco

I am about to plant seeds of dwarf french beans ,I will use one raised bed for these approx 3ft wide x 5ft long (see my photo's) the beans I bought say they can be 200cm apart (8inches in real money) this seems very close to me , any thought or comments ?




It is too early for me to sow dwarf beans yet but I will probably place mine about 6 inches appart in a staggerd row and then thin them out as necessary. This give me some insurance in case any don't germinate or get eaten or whatever.

thanks Bulbaholic , they will be in a greenhouse for some time after they germinate , I will put em in 3inch pots and let em grow, ready for planting out later on.
