Beans Climbing 'Scarlet Runner'

Adding a flashy show of colour to the vegetable garden, this variety of Scarlet Runner boasts exceptionally high yields of extremely long pods often over 30cm.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Warm soils are essential for beans. Sow directly in garden. Moisten soil at sowing but do not water until seedlings appear. Add Yates Thrive All Purpose Fertiliser before planting.

Care

Give regular applications of Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser during growth. A support of trellis or twine should be in place as soon as plants emerge. Protect emerging seedlings from snails with Yates Blitzem. Control leaf blight with Bravo; aphids and white fly with Target. These beans are most tender if picked just before reaching maximum size. For continuous harvest sow every 3-4 weeks.
