Runner Bean Butler

This is a vigorous growing runner bean plant variety producing large quantities of long, stringless pods with a very good flavour.

Sow from April to June. Early sowings can be made under glass at a temperature of 16°C. Sow 3 seeds per 8cm pot filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20-30cm with rows spaced 60cm apart. Seedlings sown under glass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Place a support cane at each planting station. Alternatively circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam. For optimum crop, place canes 30-45cm apart with 3 beans planted per cane. Water regularly during dry weather. The beans will be ready to harvest from July to September.
