Product Specification

Of all the different types of pulses, Runner Beans are probably the most popular variety for home growing. There is nothing quite like the fresh taste of your just picked beans, from your very own garden, with your dinner! Moonlight is a white flowering, self-pollinating variety with excellent flavoured pods, which are smooth and flesh. It is a high yielding variety with beans reaching approximately 25cm long.,
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings in individual pots in a greenhouse or cold frame. From early May sow 2 seeds 5cm (2") deep and 20cm (8") apart with 60cm (24") between rows outside.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Greenhouse seedlings should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the same spacings as above with a support cane at each plant station.
MATURITY
July to September
HANDY TIP
Use cooked pods, chopped into small pieces, to add great flavour and interest to salads. Always keep plants well watered when rainfall is low.
HANDY TIP
FOR FLOWER DROP Percy Thrower thought that the main cause was slightly acid soil. He recommended applying a dusting of lime to the soil in early winter over the area set aside for runner beans the next year, so that it would get washed into the topsoil by the winters rain. We have tried it and it does work.
