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.

These are called "White Lady" runner beans in England, and ranked as one of the top 5 beans to grow. Use as green beans, or as fresh mature beans, or dry them for later. Save enough to plant next year. I cannot praise runner bean White Lady highly enough; it's practically faultless in all respects. 12" pods have no fiber, and weigh 2.5 to 3 oz. each. Make sure you have adequate trellis space. Great for creating shade. Most importantly, White Lady has the thickest, most succulent and tenderest pods in the runner bean world. It's a strong grower and a wonderfully heavy cropper which sets a heavy crop whether we having a dull, wet summer or a sunny, dry one. Grow them over a trellis for children and gardener's delight. They grow so tall (15 ft) that I have had the pleasure of clipping them away from the telephone wires. Make a hole 12 inches deep with a rod. Stuff a small piece of meat to the bottom. Fill the hole, and plant the bean 2 inches deep, 4 inches apart. Have fun.
