Detailed planting instructions:

Beans are generally direct seeded in the garden. The most important point about growing green beans is not to plant them too early. They will rot in cool, damp soil. To get an earlier start, you can put down black plastic to warm the soil.

When bush beans begin producing they often come in all at once. Staggered planting, every 2 weeks, will keep your bush beans going longer. Beans like a moderately rich soil with a slightly acidic pH of about 6.0 to 6.2.

They prefer a loose, moist soil. Plant after all danger of frost is past.

Pole beans will need some type of support to grow on. Be sure the trellis, teepee, fence or whatever is in place before you seed. Plant seeds at a rate of about 3-6 seeds per teepee or every 6 inches apart.


Harvesting beans is an ongoing process. You can start to harvest anytime, but gardeners usually wait until the beans begin to firm up and can be snapped. They are generally about as think as a pencil then. Don’t wait too long, because beans can become overgrown and tough almost overnight. Harvest by gently pulling each bean from the vine or by snapping off the vine end, if you are going to be using the beans right away.


It is a suggested that you earmark a couple of plants at the beginning of the season for seed saving. Don’t pick ANY pods from them to eat - just pick the crisp brown pods at the end of the season. Don’t feed them, or water them unless it is very dry - as this can encourage leafy growth rather than pod development. There is no point in picking green pods as the seeds are not mature enough at this stage.

Grow your own food February 9, 2015
Reviewer: Garry Bright from Keller, TX United States  
My shipment arrived on time and as promised. As a relatively new prepper, I am trying to get prepared for the potential to have to feed my own family or just to save money and improve the quality and freshness of my meals. Many circumstances could lead to a need for my own food supply, some short term needs and some more long term. Either way, I need seeds to make any/all of this happen. I would give 5 stars for this but haven't planted them yet or grown anything but expect to try some out in Spring 2015. My motto is as follows: "Better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it". I recommend you do the same.
