Garden Care Advice
Growing Climbing beans, also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners (Phaseolus vulgaris, Phaseolus coccineus)
October November December (Best months for planting Climbing beans in New Zealand - cool/mountain regions)
Easy to grow
Harvest in 65-80 days
Sow in garden. Sow seed at a depth approximately three times the diameter of the seed
Best planted at soil temperatures between 16°C and 30°C.
Space plants: 10-20cm
Grow beans up fences, trellis etc the sky is the limit!
Keep well watered
Pick regularly to encourage new flowers
Watch out for snails, as they will eat through the stems near ground level, and will completely eat newly sprouted beans. If you have nice new beans plants one day, and none the next, then it is probably slugs or snails!
