Q.Runner Bean Re Sprouting

Zone 5251 | Anonymous added on November 10, 2021 | Answered

I have a runner bean that has not sprouted this year. The root system is big and luscious (looks a lot like green ginger) papery brown and green but it has not shot this year. The other one is about a foot high. How can I encourage the root (rizome) to shoot?

They won't always regrow. It's best just to replace the ones that do not regrow. You also can try digging up the thick roots in the fall and storing them over winter.
