Just bought a pack of winged bean seeds from Bunning... Anyone grow them here in Melbourne before? Any growing tip?

They do not like hot weather so I would suggest that after soaking the beans in slightly warm water for a couple of hours you plant say midway to end of September in Melbourne.... Cheers- Glen

Best to partially cover them with water and soak them until they get soft and then plant them10mm deep do not water them until they appear. regards

I just got my Wing Beans from that I ordered. I live in Texas and it is almost the end of June here. When can I plant these beans or is it too late to plant them now. Would appreciate your response. Thanks.
