Runner Beans - I set 12 seeds in pots 3 weeks ago and only two have germinated into sturdy little plants! They were last years seeds and sown in same conditions so what have I done wrong? Also is it too soon to plant more seeds outdoors (in Norfolk)? I never had this problem before in 12 years of growing beans



Maybe just get some fresh seeds? Sow straight outside, 2 to a pole and go for it :)

If stored in warm, humid conditions, such as an outdoor shed in summer, seeds lose their germination ability quite quickly.

How do I say thanks?
