Sow – April & May

Harvest – June, July, August & September

Sow early sowings in individual pots in glasshouse or cold frame. From early May sow 2 seeds 5cm (2”) deep and 20cm (8”) apart with 60cm (24”) between rows outside. Plant out glasshouse seedlings, gradually hardened, in late May with spacings as above and 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. For optimum crop place canes 45cm (18”) apart with 3 plants per cane. Runner beans are hungry plants; the ground should be well prepared and manured in the previous Autumn. Pick regularly during the harvest period to encourage more growth.
