A prolific early spring grower and heavy cropper, Scarlett Runner beans produce clusters of bright red flowers that form into purple podded beans, that amongst heirloom varieties are considered in a league of their own. In order to accommodate the plant's growth they should be trained up a sizeable trellis.

Soil  Beans fix your soil with nitrogen that they naturally produce, so a moderately fertile, free-draining soil is required. Ensuring pH is within the recommended range. 

Soil pH Level  6.5-7.0 

Position  Full sun, preferably in an area of your patch that allows them to be trained vertically and therefore conserve space. Plant where you expect to put your brassicas the following season. 

How to Plant  Sow directly to the patch at a depth 2-3 times the diameter of the seed. Give a thorough soaking after sowing and then avoid over watering before germination as bean seed has the propensity to rot. 

Spacing  15-20cm 

Depth  2-3cm 

Companion Plants  Sweet Corn, Marigold

Approximate no. of seeds  10-12

Note: We source all of our seeds locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination
