Are you up for a challenge?  If you always clean up at the village show for the coveted title of ‘longest runner bean’ then this challenge is the one for you this summer!

A couple of years ago we ran a staff runner bean growing competition and the winning runner bean was a whopping 47.2cm in length. This year we want to throw the net wider and get the nation growing lengthy beans, and so are launching a competition to seek out the UK’s longest runner bean.

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for the 3 longest beans, and of course, the winner will get to proudly state they are officially the UK’s Runner Bean Growing Champion of 2018 too!

How to Enter

  • You can grow any type of runner bean in this competition but we would recommend Runner Bean Guinness Record or Runner Bean Enorma if you really want to grow some lengthy beans.
  • Post pics of your beans on Facebook or Twitter and let us know how your young plants are getting along. We’ll have some random giveaways each month for great pictures posted with the hashtag #UKBigBean
  • You have until 30 September to grow the UK’s longest bean. Post us a picture on Facebook or Twitter of your bean with proof of its length.

The prizes

  • 1st prize: £50 worth of Mr Fothergill’s seeds
  • 2nd prize: £30 worth of Mr Fothergill’s seeds
  • 3rd prize: £20 worth of Mr Fothergill’s seeds

The Rules

Let’s not drag things down with loads of rules!  But…

  • The winners will be chosen after the competition closes at midnight on 30 September.
  • There are three prizes, with spot prize giveaways each month for fabulous runner bean pictures.
  • Mr Fothergill’s team reserves the right to choose the photos they deem the best for the spot prizes each month. Our decision is final and we will not enter into correspondence on our choices.
  • The 3 longest beans by 30 September will be chosen based on the photos submitted proving their length.
  • There is no cash alternative, the prize in non-transferable and may not be substituted by the winner.
  • If you are not the runner bean grower, and the photo you submit is not your photo, we reserve the right to disqualify you! Only your own pictures of your own produce please!

April and May is the perfect time to set your prize beans going. Take a look at the runners we have on the website here: http://www.mr-fothergills.co.uk/Pea-and-Bean-Seeds/Runner-Bean-Seeds/
