    Instructions - Peppering seeds with inoculants before sowing helps ensure good growth. Beans may benefit from a source of soluble nitrogen (if your soil is low in nitrogen) during the first 3 weeks until nitrogen-fixing nodules develop, but do not apply nitrogen after this period. Dark-seeded beans are more resistant to rotting in cool soil than light-seeded beans. Beans need a minimum soil temperature of 65 degrees F to germinate well, otherwise, seeds may rot. Plant every 3 weeks for a steady supply. For snap beans, pick before seeds fill the pods. Keep well picked so that plants continue to bear. 

    • Well-drained garden soil; do best in soils with pH above 6.0. 
    • After the last frost, plant seeds 1 in. deep
    • Plant 2 in. apart 
    • Rows: 12-18 in. apart 
    • Thinning: 4 in. apart 
    • Avoid watering the plants in the evening. 
    • Mulch plants to prevent rain from splashing dirt on beans.
