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. The three main issues affecting Pea plants are Pea Moth, Pea Leaf Weevil and Powdery Mildew. Rodents can also be an issue but they are mainly concerned with taking the Pea seeds which won’t be an issue if you buy them from Roots because we supply the plant as a plug. To prevent the pests you can cover your plants in a fine horticultural fleece. To prevent Powdery Mildew you should try and keep the plant dry and maintain good garden hygiene. MORE

Water Regularly

Full Sun in a Sheltered PositionMORE

Full Sun in a Sheltered Postion

Runner Beans and Peas 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

Prune Lightly

For the climbing varieites, you will want to prune off the growth tip once the plant has reached 180cm to contain its growth and redirect energy into producing more beans and peas.MORE
