Scarlet Runner Beans in the Garden.

Posted Mar 28 2009 3:02pm

The brilliant, scarlet flowers of the runner bean plants, with the dark green background of the leaves, make a great picture in the vegetable garden.

They also make excellent patio plants when grown in containers because of the scarlet flowers, as well as the vegetables they produce.

  • Water in dry weather so the flowers are able to set fruit.
  • Keep the runner beans well picked. If beans are left on the vine to mature, flower production will be suppressed and no more runner beans will be produced.
  • Give the inevitable surplus beans away, so that more beans are produced
