How to Grow
Beans will tolerate a wide range of soil types, but make their best growth in light, organic, well drained soil with a pH of about 6.5. Beans have a distinct dislike for cold, wet soils, so plant seed only after the soil has warmed to at least 16 C (60 F). Plant seed 2.5 cm (1″) deep and 8 cm (3″) apart in rows spaced 45 to 70 cm. (18 to 28″) apart. To ensure a continuous harvest, plant bush-type varieties every 10 days until mid-July.
