A British bred bean, well deserving of its RHS AGM. This bicoloured red and white flowered variety produces particularly heavy yields of pale green, 30cm (12") long pods. Crops from Runner Bean 'St George' are earlier and of superior quality when compared to Runner Bean 'Painted Lady'. Harvest the smooth, fleshy beans regularly for a continuous crop throughout the summer. 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.
1 packet (40 runner bean seeds).
