Runner Beans Scarlet Emperor seeds




An old favourite. Early into production, shorter growing and slightly rough pod texture but outstanding flavour.

Seed Count - 55

When to sow

April to June
Where to sow

Early sowings in individual pots in glasshouse or cold frame or from early May sow 2 seeds 5cm (2") deep and 20cm (8") apart with 60cm (24") between rows outside.

What to do next

Glasshouse seedlings should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the spacings above with a support cane at each planting station. Reduce outside sowings to single plants. Circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam.

July onwards.
