Organic Bush Bean Planting Guide
Bush beans are very simple to grow; they do well in most gardens and in most soil types. They should be directly seeded when soil reaches 65-75F (18-24C), and there is no longer a risk for a frost. Sow your bush beans 1 inch (2.5cm) deep and 2 inches (5cm) apart in row about 18 inches (45cm) apart.
In order to have fresh beans all summer, reseed your bush bean patch every two weeks and pick them frequently. If you are using an untreated bush bean seed, plant them thicker than usual, and later thin them to the desired density.
A garden inoculant may be used at planting time to help increase the soil’s fertility. Bush beans grow excellent with all vegetables except the onion family, fennel, basil and kohlrabi.
Maturity days are the best way to know when to pick your bush beans. A mature bush bean feels smooth, firm and crisp.
