Scarlet Runner

meowdacatOctober 7, 2008

I plan to do a science project on how worms affect bean plants. The plant I chose to use for the project is the scarlet runner. Here's my problem; According to some websites and books, they only grow in spring. Is that true? My project is due in January, and I should start it around the end of November and the begining of December. This could be a major problem for my project! I need a backup plan... I may try to use the type of bean I get from the store, but I don't remember what type that is, and so I can't really research it. I need answers... fast! The rough draft of my research is due on 10/13.

According to your member page, your location is "US Minor Outlying Isle". Whether beans can be grown during November and December depends on your climate. Where do you live?

No one here knows what type of bean you got from the store, so we can't help you with that.
