I used the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of GERMINATION.  Then planted the germinated seed in a pot.  Planted them into the ground when danger of frost was gone.

Well I guess I'd better git-a-going then.  We can plant outdoors in just about 10 more weeks (IF we're having a good year).  Will let you know how they are doing.

Hi Kelly,

You couldn't find the original post because I put it under 'VEGETABLES' since I grow it to eat...SORRY.  I am happy that the seeds germinated so nicely.  Sure hope your rubber snake works.  :0)  I use the old reliable CHICKEN WIRE. LaughEnjoy my friend.  Which reminds me to take a look and see if your daylilly is showing yet.

Transplanted my Scarlet Runner Bean and then it rained PERFECT.  Edible and pretty. I have chicken wire around them so the bunnies don't eat them.  The chicken wire is only a foot high.  I think I will plant marigolds or nasturtiums around the base. I also put in a seed to germinate later for a later harvest.

I planted mine in two places in the backyard in the fenced area.  One of the vines got about 2' tall and then got chewed off at the base even though I had a rubber snake there.  The other three are going strong and one has blooms already.  I am keeping an eye on them and will use the "pee" method if I have to:))))

A couple of my beans got chewed off too.  They are in the bog garden which is fenced in.  They are probably baby bunnies or MICE.  Cry I am germinating some more seed now.

On 5-13 I started these seeds using the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of SEED GERMINATION.  They sprouted in 3 days.  I only had 6 seeds and all germinated.  I planted them into 3" pots since it is really cold and rainy outside.  Hopefully they will be planted into the garden in 10 days or so.

A friend of mine just told me that she has these seeds available to share with me.  THANK YOU.  They are such a pretty flowering vine and totally edible.  WIN, WIN.  The hummers and butterflies like  them as much as I do.
