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.MORE

Water Regularly

Full Sun in a Sheltered PositionMORE

Full Sun in a Sheltered Postion

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

Fertile, Well-draining

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

Feed Regularly

Once the flowers emerge feed the plants with a high-potash fertiliser such as liquid tomato feed.MORE

Not required

Put the tools down! No pruning required.MORE
