Description

The Runner Bean, known botanically as Phaseolus coccineus, is both decorative and functional in a garden setting. Its vibrant red flowers make an eye-catching display during Djilba (late winter to early spring), and the subsequent bean pods are deliciously edible, providing fresh produce for your table. This climbing plant, with its twining stems, is a fantastic choice for vertical gardening, adding height and interest to your garden's design.

Whether sown directly in the ground, raised in pots, or included in vege/herb gardens, Runner Beans are quite adaptable. Staking or climbing support is necessary. For those opting for in-ground cultivation in sandy soils, integrating organic compost will boost soil fertility and support plant growth. These beans appreciate a sunny spot and consistent watering. Enriching the soil with a balanced vegetable fertiliser in Djeran (autumn) can help maximise your harvest. Pruning isn't typically needed, making these beans a low-maintenance choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.
