If planting in rows then plant 20-30cm apart. For Dward varieities you can leave 45cm in between rows but for climbing varieties you will need to leave 60cm in between rows. If planting in containers then plant them with a container that is at least 8 inches deep as runner bean plants have deep root systems.

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 as 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 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

Feed Regularly

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