Runner bean Benchmaster was bred with the UK spring and summer climate in mind. It delivers large yields over a long period of time, whatever the weather. Often recommended for those growing for competitions, it performs brilliantly in the garden or on the allotment, producing long, smooth, fleshy pods with a great taste. The pretty red flowers mean it should take a starring role in the veg garden – or even in flower borders! Sow from April to May to harvest from July to September.
This variety, together with all the other varieties in our RHS AGM Veg Seed Collection, have been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Such plants have been awarded this accolade after testing and assessment by the society, and is only given to plants that have proved to have excellent garden performance and worth growing.
