Soil Preparation: Before planting, ensure your soil is well-drained and rich in organic matter. Aim for a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5. Mix in compost or a balanced slow-release fertilizer.
Planting Time: Plant bush beans in the spring once the soil has warmed to at least 60°F (16°C) and all danger of frost has passed. In warmer climates, you can plant a second crop in late summer for a fall harvest.
Planting Depth & Spacing: Sow seeds 1 to 1.5 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart in rows that are 18 to 24 inches apart.
Watering: Water moderately after planting, and then keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Beans have shallow roots, so be mindful not to over-water.
Sunlight: Ensure your beans are in a location that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.
Maintenance: Bush beans generally don’t need support, but keep an eye out for pests such as aphids and beetles. Practice crop rotation to prevent diseases.
Harvesting: Harvest when the pods are firm, crisp, and fully elongated, but before the seeds inside have fully developed. This is usually 50-60 days after planting. Pick beans every few days to encourage continued production.
Enjoy your freshly harvested beans in salads, stir-fries, or as a steamed side dish! They can also be blanched and frozen for later use.
