Runner Bean Seeds

Growing suggestions for runner bean seeds

Direct sow runner bean seeds from May until the beginning of June, when the soil has warmed up. If sown when the soil is too cold and/or wet the beans may rot. We recommend building the climbing structure first (poles distanced 65cm between rows and 40cm within the row) and then planting four runner beans at the base of each pole 4cm deep. This way you will know exactly where the beans have been planted and also you will not damage the roots when building the structure.

Crop history

Phaseolus coccineus originated from the mountains of Central America. Most varieties of runner beans have red flowers and multicoloured seeds. They were first grown in Britain as ornamental climbers, and in most other parts of the world still are. They are naturally a perennial, but grown as an annual in our temperate climate.

There is a very high demand for seed at the moment so we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.

Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity, we have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.

Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.

P.S. we apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some
