This reliable favourite produces huge early yields of enormous, smooth, slender pods of up to 50cm (20") in length, from July to October. Awarded an RHS Award of Garden Merit, this delicious runner bean is popular for its excellent flavour, as well as its exhibition quality beans that are perfect for entering in the local horticultural show! Runner bean ?Enorma? is also suitable for freezing. Height: 3m (10?). Spread: 30cm (12").

Companion planting: Try growing runner beans with sweet peas to attract pollinating insects to the flowers, and Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.

Sow runner bean seed indoors from mid April for transplanting later on, or direct sow outdoors from late May to July.

Indoors, sow seed at a depth of 5cm (2") in 7.5cm (3") pots or trays of free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) until germination which takes 7-10 days. Once germinated, grow runner beans on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and runner bean plants are large enough to be transplanted. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting runner beans outdoors in rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade with protection from strong winds. Avoid freshly manured soil which will promote lush foliage instead of beans.

Alternatively direct sow runner beans outdoors at a depth of 5cm (2") and a distance of 30cm (12") apart. Plant runner beans in rows that are 1.5m (5') apart, or where space is limited, grow beans onto a wigwam structure. Runner beans require support from garden canes, strings or netting which should be put in place at the time of planting.
