How to Grow

Beans tolerate a wide range of soil types. Their best growth is in light, organic, well-drained soil with a pH of about 6.5. Beans have a distinct dislike for cold, wet soils, so seed only after the soil has warmed to at least 16 C. Sow 2.5cm deep and 8cm apart in rows spaced 45 - 70cm (18 - 28in) apart. To ensure a continuous harvest, sow bush-type varieties every 10 days until mid-July. Keep beans evenly watered, particularly when the plants are in flower and when production of the pods starts. Avoid the use of high nitrogen fertilizer - nitrogen promotes excessive foliage.
