Home Sown Runner Bean Seeds
Sow your bean seeds into a small plastic recycled mushroom tray (with no holes in the bottom) at a depth of 1” (25mm), in a multipurpose or seed compost. After watering the first time, pierce the tray sides (as in the picture) to allow drainage, but make sure they still retain some of the water as beans like to be kept moist. Keep them in a light, warm, airy position and ensure that the surface of the compost is kept damp. With luck you should see the beans pushing through the compost in 10-14 days time.
