1 Packet (30 Runner Bean Seeds) (TT00231)
Sow runner bean seed indoors from mid April for transplanting later on, or direct sow outdoors from late May to early July.
Indoors, sow seed at a depth of 5cm (2") in 7.5cm (3") pots or trays of free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) until germination which takes 7-10 days. Once germinated, grow runner beans on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and runner bean plants are large enough to be transplanted. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting runner beans outdoors in rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade with protection from strong winds. Avoid freshly manured soil which will promote lush foliage instead of beans.
Alternatively direct sow runner beans outdoors at a depth of 5cm (2") and a distance of 30cm (12") apart. Plant runner beans in rows that are 1.5m (5') apart, or where space is limited, grow beans onto a wigwam structure. Runner beans require support from garden canes, strings or netting which should be put in place at the time of planting.

Great taste, heavy crops of high quality, stringless beans providing you don't leave them to get huge. Really popular with all my friends.

Simply the best runner bean I have ever grown.Huge crop of tender beans.
these beans are brilliant, iv'e never had so many, the birds leave the flowers alone, so that gave us loads of beans, and still picking, glad ive found these, will grow again next year.

This variety seemed a bit slower to germinate than my old favourite streamline, but they soon caught up and I ended up picking beans by the handful. The white flowers are very attractive and the birds did seem to pay them less attention, which was the main reason I tried them. I would grow these again.
