£3.99

SKU ATT04775 Category Delivery

Half hardy Annual

Description – RHS AGM Winner, producing the heaviest yield of quality pods at the most recent Wisley Runner Bean trial. British bred bicoloured red and white flower, much earlier, heavier cropping with superior quality, smoother, fleshy, pale green 25-30cm pods when compared to ‘Painted Lady’. The straight pods of Runner Bean St George have good ‘snap’ with little string or fibre if picked regularly whilst young.

Sowing – Sow seeds mid April indoors for transplanting, late April to June outdoors. Sow in 7.5cm (3in) pots at 18-20C (64-68F), 4cm (1½in) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which takes 7-10 days.
Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed, 15cm (6in) apart, 5cm (2in) deep and in rows 45cm (18in) apart. For even earlier crops, this variety can be pinched out and grown as a low Bush Bean.

Growing – Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 7-1 days before planting out after all risk of frost, against support such as canes or netting.

Aftercare – Hoe regularly and keep plants well watered. Mulch during dry periods.

Harvest – June to October
