Snapped runner bean plant.
Managed to snap one of my runner bean plants as I planted it, have cut it back down to the last set of leaves, has around 3 sets of true leaves. Do you think it will still grow? - have planted some back up beans in case.



If you'd snapped it off with no leaves I think it wouldn't have survived, but as it is you'll probably end up with a slightly bushier plant than the others, but no harm done. It will be able to regrow from all the axilliary buds in the leaf axils of the three pairs of leaves you have.

Thanks, I was hoping so - my first time with runner beans you see!
