Runner Bean Frame

Contents in the box:

  • End frame with ball finial x2
  • Middle frame with nuts x3
  • Connecting rod
  • Diagonal cross brace x2
  • Jute netting

How to assemble the Runner Bean Frame:

  1. Remove an end frame finial, then slot a diagonal cross brace onto it, followed by one end of the connecting rod, finally reattaching the finial.
  2. Repeat this process with the other end frame and diagonal cross brace.
  3. Now put the Runner Bean Frame into position in the vegetable bed/plot and push each end frame 4-6” into the soil.
  4. Attach a middle frame to the connecting rod by undoing the nut, slotting on top and reattaching the nut to secure in place. 
  5. Repeat this process with the other 2 middle frames and secure these into the ground.
  6. Drape the jute netting over the finished Runner Bean Frame and use the ties provided to secure it to the end frames. NB: In windy locations it might be necessary to peg the netting down.

Care and maintenance of the Runner Bean Frame:

  • Wilstone plant frames and supports are provided with a burnt wax finish which is designed to oxidise gracefully to give a lovely rust finish - this allows it to blend perfectly into its natural surroundings.
  • At the end of the growing season cut the jute ties and either remove any plant debris to re-use the netting or compost the netting in your green bin.
  • Clean any soil/dirt from the frame, coat with Owatrol Oil and store in a dry place over winter.
  • The Runner Bean Frame will provide years of use with the right care.
