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! As the name implies this variety has won many a trophy on the show bench over the years, probably because of its long straight pods of excellent quality.,
Seed Count: 55,
WHEN TO SOW

April to June
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings in individual pots in glasshouse or cold frame or from early May sow 2 seeds 5cm (2") deep and 20cm (8") apart with 60cm (24") between rows outside.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Glasshouse seedlings should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the spacings above with a support cane at each planting station. Reduce outside sowings to single plants. Circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam.
MATURITY
July onwards
HANDY TIP
Worth a gamble. Sow a few seeds in March outside. Some years frost will strike, some years not. If not, very early Beans in your garden.
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.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE
A good source of Vitamin C, Folic acid and Iron. High fibre content.
