How to Plant and Grow Bush Bean

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Bush Bean Seeds: Direct sow bush bean seeds into the vegetable garden after all danger of frost, 2-3 in. apart, in rows 18-30 in. apart. Kept at 60-80°F., germination is in 8-16 days.

Grow Bush Bean: To ensure a continuous supply make successive sowings every 3-4 weeks up until two months before the first anticipated fall frost. Pick snap and filet beans when the seeds inside are very small. Pick shell beans when seeds are fully formed but not yet dried out. Dried beans are left on the bush until pods are brittle and easy to split.
