Runner beans grow big and are vigorous climbers. They need to be well supported – you need a stable structure so that the plants can climb easily. One of the most simplest and attractive ways is to use bamboo canes formed into the shape of a wigwam. Another way is to make a double row about 30 cm apart and tie the tops together at the top with string. Or they can be grown along a wall or fence with netting attached for them to cling to – if using this method it has to be in the right location for the sun.
These beans should be trained up canes, chicken wire, netting or special bean wigwams, especially in the beginning. They usually attach themselves and climb away but wild weather can hinder this so give them a hand now and then.
Water only during dry periods. Keep the bed weed-free - and your beans will thrive.
Runner beans (Phaseolus coccineus) belong to a different species than most beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). These are climbers and often have red flowers which are larger than usual and can even look attractive in the border! Plant them to climb a trellis or fencing at the back of the border which will add a lovely bright red and green backdrop to your garden.
