You need bees!  Have patience, they will come.  In my experience runners take a little time until they get in their stride, then you will be overwhelmed with beans.

It is definitely the weather-they may be self pollinating but like french beans they need warmth -you will get beans eventually-just a matter of time

Many thanks for your advice - we grew the beans sucessfully in our cold house last year, however this year is looking very disappointing.  There is plenty of warmth in the cold house and as we are in Guernsey it has not been that cold.  I am taking defensive action and sowing some White Lady beans, just in case!
