You can grow them in modules to plant out but you can't...well, most of them will fail....dig up and transplant carrots.  I'm sure if done very carefully you could but I have never managed it. 

Why do you want to transplant them?  Do you have gaps in the rows?  Better to sow again in those gaps if so

Cut yes whenever you want to. Now, however, is perfect because new growth will be so much quicker.

Runner Beans.

Eat masses of beans, freeze loads and give away lots. My row is greatly reduced about 20' I guess.  I grow the white flowered ones and they look so good in summer too.

What's the weather like in your area?

Pimching out?  Just cut out the tips of shoots back to a pair of leaves.  Use pair of nail scissors or use your finger and thumb nails.  It just makes plants bushier

Nice thread KEF

Runner Beans.

Posted: 18/05/2013 at 00:16

My runner bean construction is based on 3 x 8' galvanised poles, supports and struts 3 wires and a bean net. The wires pass through holes in the poles and through a bean net.  It is immensely strong and needs to be.  I grow huge crops of beans.  Beans are grown on both sides of the support.  Over the years I have found this to be by far the best way to grow runner beans
