Pole Bean Seed Planting Information:

Pole beans are great for small gardens where you have limited space. Pole beans have higher yields than bush beans, but require some type of support. They come in a number of colors, including green, purple, and yellow pods. Plant your pole beans in early summer when the danger of frost is over. Plant seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Pole beans require a richer soil than other beans. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 3 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 3 to 10" tall.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires rich fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Beans do not like soil that is too moist. Water during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Pinch or cut the pods off carefully to avoid damaging the plant. Pick every few days for tender beans. Frequent harvesting also encourages plant to produce more pods.
