Thompson & Morgan Runner Bean Red Rum 40 Seed

£3.69

Runner Bean - Red Rum

This is a very early cropper producing lots of pods and very little foliage, resulting in a tremendous crop of succulent, 15-20cm pods. Runner Bean Red Rum is excellent for organic gardeners as this variety is Halo Blight tolerant. This means it will keep on cropping whilst other varieties are going down with this disease.

Prefers to be grown in fertile, moist, yet well drained soil which has had plenty of well-rotted compost dug into it the previous autumn. For an early start, sow seeds from mid-spring in artificial heat (propagator, greenhouse, warm room) in peat pots and plant out after last expected frost. Outdoors do not sow until at least 10 days after last frost, 5cm deep. Sow 2 seeds every 30cm in rows 38cm apart. Remove weaker seedlings after germination. Make sure your soil is warm and avoid it becoming baked hard. Provide poles, trellis or mesh for them to climb. Water regularly and liquid feed every 14 days as the beans form. A thick mulch will help conserve moisture. Pick the beans regularly a little on the young side to ensure top quality and prolonged cropping.
