How to Grow Runner Beans
- First sow Seeds in Pots: French and runner beans are sensitive to frost, so sow them inside.
- Dig out a trench to at least one shovel's depth and fill the base with a deep layer of compost. This will give your beans the energy they need..
- Then, use long garden stakes to create a sturdy climbing frame to support them all summer.
- Plant one seedling at the base of each stake and tie the stem to it, until it takes hold by itself.
