  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • They should be directly seeded in the spring when soil reaches 65-75F (18-24C), and there is no longer a risk for a frost.
    • Bush beans are determinate, meaning they grow to a certain size, about 2’ tall, blossom, turn out a single harvest of beans and then die.
    • If you want a large crop to be ready almost all at once for canning or freezing, sow all of the seeds at the same time.
    • If you want a higher, continuous yield throughout the season, you can have a succession of plantings with increments of 10 days, for example.

    How to Plant:

    • Bush beans are very simple to grow; they do well in most gardens and in most soil types.
    • 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, in full sun.
    • Sow your bush beans 1 inch deep and 4-6” apart, with rows 18-24” apart.

    How to Harvest:

    • 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.
    • A mature bush bean feels smooth, firm and crisp.
    • 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.

    If you are growing bush beans for multiple years in a row, rotate your planting area yearly. This will help prevent any soil-borne diseases from killing the beans as seedlings.
