No doubt a garden staple, Runner Beans taste delicious and there are many varieties to grow. Summer wouldn’t feel quite the same without them, and they beat shop bought produce any day.

They are also great space-savers, and can be grown in small plots but will grow equally well in larger plots too. How about growing your Runner Bean seeds in the garden border? Producing stunning flowers they even look good growing here!

Why Grow Your Own Runner Beans From Seed?

There are many runner bean varieties to choose from, and you can also think outside the box when it comes to planting. How about an Archway Bamboo Wigwams dotted among an herbaceous border makes a great horticultural feature. Ready-made Runner Bean Frames is also a perfect way to grow these striking plants. For smaller spaces, growing runner beans in pots or containers is super easy. If you prefer a reliable old favourite then ‘Scarlet Emperor’ won’t let you down, and for something a little bit different, the ‘Black Knight’ is a good choice.

A seasonal favourite and a versatile ingredient in the kitchen, plot to plate tastes great when Runner Beans are quick-fried in a stir-fry, added to a salad or even made into a healthier runner bean mac and cheese.

When To Plant Runner Bean Seeds?

Sow seeds under glass in April or outdoors in May or June.
