Growing Calendar for Runner Bean Moonlight- Seeds
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Grow award-winning climbing runner bean Moonlight - a rare white-flowered variety giving you handfuls of smooth, stringless pods with excellent flavour.
Moonlight produces masses of snow-white flowers which set well even in poor weather or high temperatures - perfect for our variable UK summers. This results in guaranteed, heavy crops of tasty beans which reach 30cm (12in) in length.
Moonlight's excellent self-pollinating characteristics ensure a good bean set. We recommend you sow indoors in clean pots or module trays of compost 2in (5cm) deep. Water them well and keep warm until planting outdoors in June.
The first self pollinating Runner Bean!
Sow Indoors: April-May, singly in clean pots or module trays of compost 2in (5cm) deep. Water well and keep warm.
Sow Outdoors: May-June, direct into the required harvest position 2 seeds, 2in (5cm) deep, 8in (20cm) apart. Keep soil moist at all times.
Plant Out: Indoor raised crops May-June 8in (20cm) apart after the risk of frost has passed.
Runner beans require trellis or a ''wig wam'' of canes to climb through. Pick beans young for best flavour.

Only sown 2 seeds but both doing well
If anything like last year will be fabulous
Iíve used these before and they were a good variety, now a favourite. They do seem to set the beans more easily than other varieties Iíve tried.
