Runner beans

When we viewed this bungalow back in the summer there was a whole wall of sweet peas, green beans and peas stretching across the garden. Fast forward to October and us moving in and now this wall is looking very sad and past their best. I've just picked everything I could see and out of it all I've got a few runner beans for tomorrow's dinner. My question is can I use the blackened beans to grow next year and is there anything I can do with the huge, tough beans and peas which were just left too long. The sweet peas are dry and brittle and the seeds are falling out so I've collected them but will they produce such spectacular results next year.

Re: Runner beans

Save them all as seeds and try again next year. They will be fine.

Re: Runner beans

They will be fine to repot. I've had a fantastic crop from my scotch bonnet plant and I've potted lots of seeds into shallow trays to regrow.

Re: Runner beans

I always keep seeds from everything I grow, cucumbers, beans, peas, flowers, anything that produces seed, saves buying the next year. Regarding the tough beans and peas, if you have enough left over after collecting their seeds, there are loads of soup recipes on the internet you could try with these.

Re: Runner beans

Thanks everyone, I've put all the growth in the compost bin now but I saved some beans. I collect flower seeds but I was sure I read somewhere it's best to buy new beans every year. I'm gonna give it a try so watch this space.

Re: Runner beans

With runner beans I think the only potential problem is if the runners pick up some infection (e.g. fungal attack) and the seeds are infected for next year. I've never encountered this, so can't be sure. Otherwise - fine.

Re: Runner beans

The seeds you buy in the shops, I would imagine are from the previous years produce. All my bean plants this year, were seeds that I saved from last year, and I had the best crop ever, picked 2kgs approx. every 2 days, sadly only 1 picking left, but I cannot complain.
