Description – Mr. Tall has very long legs! He’s so tall that when I look up at him, I can hardly see his face; it’s so far away! Mr. Tall is a good friend to have, he can see for miles, which is very helpful for worms.
Sowing – Sow seeds 5cm (2in) deep in rows spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
Growing – I love growing runner beans because theyre tall like me! Sometimes gardening gives me backache because I have to bend right down to the ground, but runner beans grow up and up. You’ll need to put some long canes or sticks in the ground for them to climb up and if they’re really tall, you might need a ladder to pick them! It’s worth it, they’re delicious!
Harvest – August to September
