Growing instructions
Sow outdoors from the middle of May after the last frosts. Beans are often sown in clusters of five to six seeds together in a planting hole, keeping a distance of about 40 cm between clusters. Row spacing approx 100 cm. The beans should not be buried more than 2 cm deep. Seeds of legumes often germinate better if they are pre-soaked in water for a few hours. Runner beans are climbing plants and need a climbing aid or trellis. Suitable rods or cords should be completed and already installed prior to sowing.
Beans are most comfortable at temperatures between 18 and 25 °C. They prefer a sunny, sheltered location and deep humus-rich soil. When the plants have grown about 20 cm high, earthing up is highly recommended.
