A rich source of Vitamin C and originally from America, our Fun to Grow Robbie Runner Bean is ready to impress your children with the speed that they can grow.

Simply sow your seeds in small pots 38mm deep in a full sun position from April to June using moist compost. Keep on a sunny windowsill and water well. This half hardy plant can also be sown directly into the garden in May and June. Your Robbie Runners will start to appear after 7 to 14 days, when they will need to be planted outside in beds or borders. They grow very tall and will climb up canes and netting, before beautiful red flowers appear. Don't worry when the flowers start to fade as the bean will start to appear and grow really quickly. Keep your plants well watered and enjoy harvesting your crop when they are about 25cm long.

The Fun to Grow range has a wide variety of flowers, fruit and veg for you and your children to enjoy planting and picking together in the garden.
