  • Planting Instructions

    Bush Beans – Determinate, meaning they grow to a certain size, about 2’ tall, blossom, turn out a single harvest of beans, then die. This is good if you want a crop to be ready almost all at once for canning or freezing. A succession of bush bean plantings, for example sowing new seeds every 10 days, will give you a higher yield continuously through the season.

    Beans grow best in full sun. Prepare the beds by amending with compost and organic material so that you have loose, well-drained soil.

    Beans grow best in temperatures between 50-85F. Plant bush beans 4-6” apart, rows 18-24” apart.

    Harvest bush beans 50-60 days after sowing when pods are about 3” - 5" long and before you see the outline of the beans inside. For use as dried beans, allow beans to dry on the vine for weeks after normal harvesting time. Pull the entire plant out from the soil and shell beans over a large table or tray.
