Care Guide

Good Pest/Disease Resistance

Runner Beans can be susceptible to attacks from slugs and aphids which are more of an issue during different parts of the plant's life. Initially, when the plant is still a seedling, slugs are the biggest threat and you should try to prevent their attacks by keeping the ground clear of any debris and as dry as possible at night. As the plant grows older it may encounter problems with aphids. The best defense against aphids is to wash your plant down with soapy water targeting infested areas.

Water Regularly

Full Sun in a Sheltered Position

Full Sun in a Sheltered Position

Runner Beans need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day. Best grown in a sheltered position to protect against cold, chilling winds.

Fertile, Well-draining

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.

Feed Regularly

When the plant begins producing flowers you should then be giving it a high-potash feed every week. A feed such as liquid tomato fertilizer works well. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png
