Common Questions

Why is my Enorma runner bean plant dying? Lack of water can be one of the main reasons for your Enorma plant dying before harvest. If you are positive that your runner beans have been getting enough water then it could be suffering from blight, a bacterial or fungal disease.

Should you pinch out the top of your Enorma runner bean plant? Your Enorma plant will need a strong support system, whether you use canes, trellis or a wigwam. You can encourage your runner bean plant to grow out bushier by pinching the growing tips at the top of your plant.

Can you grow Enorma runner beans for competition? If you are looking to grow runner beans for competitions then Enorma is the best choice. Our range of Enorma seeds allows you to harvest long straight runner beans with the potential to grow many long runner bean pods!
