Runner Bean - Moonlight
This is a major breakthrough in British breeding of Runner Beans. This unique, profusely white flowering variety combines the beneficial characters of French Beans into Runner Beans. It produces extra smooth, very fleshy, stringless, 25cm pods with a great texture and traditional runner bean taste. The vastly improved flower setting means an earlier and continual crop even during poor weather.
Sow seed, 5cm deep in 7.5cm pots or trays of good, free-draining, seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 18-20C until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before planting out after risk of frost, against canes or netting. Hoe regularly and keep well-watered. Mulch during dry periods and give a liquid fertiliser every 2 weeks.
