About Top Crop Dwarf Beans

Dwarf beans (also known as 'French Beans' or 'Round Beans') are a compact vegetable that grows on a small bush.  The Top Crop dwarf is a productive green bean variety.  

Dwarf beans are ideal for small gardens as they don't need staking (unlike runner beans).  They can even be grown in a pot on the balcony if you are really short on space. They also happen to be one of the easiest vegetables you can grow - great for beginner gardeners!

Culinary Uses of Green Dwarf Beans

The humble green bean is versatile ingredient in the kitchen that can be used in European, Mediterranean, South East Asian and Asian cuisine alike. Try them in a French Salad Nicoise, sautéed with a little garlic and olive olive oil, or as part of a stir fry.  My Dutch Grandmother always used them in her famous broth. 

Growing Conditions - Top Crop Dwarf Beans

These easy going plants adapt to most soil types but prefer slightly acidic soil.  They love the sun and can tolerate a little wind, but don't like frost.   When the plants are in flower (or have beans on them) water regularly, especially in dry spells.  Plant in early spring, after the last frosts. 

Cabbage, cauliflowers and carrots are good companions for dwarf beans, but avoid planting onions, garlic or beetroot nearby.

What type of Climate Do Top Crop Dwarf Beans Prefer?
Dwarf Beans don't tolerate frost.  If you live in a cooler area, sow them between November and January, when the soil has warmed up.   In warm areas you can start sowing in October.   Beans are a seasonal crop - they won't survive frosty winter weather.

    We offer a replacement guarantee

    To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural).

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


    Where do you deliver to? 

    We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

    South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

    While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

    We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

    Do you deliver to post office boxes?

    Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
