Three of the best new generation stringless ‘super’ runner bean varieties, producing masses of long, tasty pods all summer whatever the weather. And the mix of flower colours makes them extremely ornamental!" Mix includes the following varieties (1 packet of each):
Moonlight - The world's first self-pollinating white flowered runner bean - sets well even in poor conditions The original French/Runner bean cross variety introduced in 2011 and already a customer favourite. Long, stringless, tasty pods in profusion and attractive white blossom through the summer. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
Firestorm - An innovative red-flowered variety which sets huge quantities of delicious, high quality 25cm (10") long pods of exceptional flavour. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
Tenderstar - Tenderstar has to be tasted to be believed – its flavour and tenderness are exceptional. Plants bear a profusion of attractive pink-and-red blooms, and masses of 18-20cm (7-8") long pods are freely produced throughout the summer whatever the weather. The short fleshy pods make preparation for cooking exceptionally easy – just top, tail and steam or lightly boil.
A new generation of ‘super’ runner beans for your best harvests ever, even in poor weather! These ‘super beans’ are the result of 15 years of British breeding to carefully combine the best characteristics of French beans and runner beans, these outstanding varieties will crop heavily even when the weather is poor and there aren’t a lot of pollinators about.
Crops 12-16 weeks from sowing. Tasty, nutritious and easy to grow! Try varieties with different flower colours for a ‘wall of colour’. Recent research suggests that evening watering of the roots increases pod set and subsequent cropping. Sow under cover in April for early crops, planting out in late May. For early crops sown outdoors, protect with fleece or cloches to warm the soil and protect the young plants. For tall types in rows, sow outside 5–7.5cm (2–3") deep, spacing seeds 15cm (6") apart in double rows 45cm (18") apart. Allow a further 1.5m (5') between double rows. (Alternatively if space is limited, sow in circles and grow up canes in a ‘wigwam’ format.) Insert long cane supports or netting soon after germination/planting. Plants will reach a height of 1.8–2.1m (6–7').
