Description for Sem Phali, Lima Beans
Phaseolus lunatus is a legume grown for its edible seeds, or beans.
Planting and care
They are usually shipped in the spring as bare roots when plants are fully dormant, well before they have leafed out. Theyâ€™ll look like a bundle of sticks on arrival. Note, they are not deadâ€”simply dormant.If you are buying container-grown plants (vs. bare-root plants), plant them by May or early June for best results.
Caring for Sem Phali
- To help conserve water, reduce stress, and encourage healthy growth, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of chopped and shredded leaves, grass clippings, or shredded bark around the base of your plants.
- Allow about an inch of space between the mulch and the base stem of the plant.
