Talkback: Growing runner beans

My crop has been superb this year. It must be all the rain! I do hope they keep cropping well into autumn, so will follow your advice.

Butterflybrain and figrat you are not alone!  Beans didn't do well at all and so many blackfly this year

I tried "Moonlight" this year - a cross between runners and climbing French beans - which are supposed to be foolproof against a poor summer.

Well - a poor summer it has really been, but I have been unimpressed by the performance.  Reasonable (just) harvesting, but flavour not particularly good, and I think I'll revert to "proper" runners int he future!
