These are another which bring back bad memories of being force fed old leathery beans that were stringy and generally not nice.
However, having grown my own and eaten fresh and young and covered in butter there really is nothing better.
How to Grow Runner Beans
1. Plant in rows after the last frost.
2. Train up canes, I use a wigwam construction see picture.
3. Pick when young and fresh this will encourage new growth
4. When the crop has finished leave the roots in the ground as they are nitrogen fixing and will help fertilise the soil.
