1 packet contains Pole Bean - 5gm seeds.
Dried or fresh, shelled or whole, beans are a favourite crop for home vegetable gardens. They are easy to grow, and the range of plant sizes means there is room for beans in just about any garden.
Among the hundreds of varieties available, there are types that thrive in every section of the country.These are further divided according to growth habit. Bush types are generally self-supporting. Pole beans have twining vines that require support from stakes, strings, wires, or trellises. Runner beans are similar to pole beans, although runners need cooler growing conditions. Half-runners, popular in the South, fall somewhere in between pole and bush beans.Pole beans yield two to three times more than bush beans from the same space, are easier to harvest, and many gardeners believe they are better tasting. Both types have similar requirements, except pole beans need a 5- to 8-foot-tall support. Can provide strong background or vertical element in flower garden.
||Full Sun. Can tolerate partial shade but will reduce yield.
||Water regularly, from start of pod to set. Water on sunny days so foliage will not remain soaked.
||Prefers well-drained soil, but with consistent moisture. Only requires average fertility. pH 6.0 to 6.8.
||Germination temperature: 70 F to 80 F
||Pole beans need little fertilizer. organic Fertilizer should be added to the soil before planting pole beans.
Harvest when the pods are firm, crisp and fully elongated, but before the seeds within the pod have developed significantly.
Pick beans after the dew is off the plants and they are thoroughly dry.
Picking beans from wet plants can spread bean bacterial blight, a disease that seriously damages the plants.
Be careful not to break the stems or branches, which are brittle on most bean varieties.
The bean plant continues to form new flowers and produces more beans if pods are continually removed before the seeds mature.
