Legume Category Growing Guide


Depth to Plant Seeds: 1"
Seed Spacing: Bush varieties - 4" apart. Pole varieties -  if growing on a teepee style trellis, plant 3-4 seeds a few inches from the bottom of each teepee pole (don't plant all 3-4 seeds in the same spot - space them out around the outside of the pole).
Row Spacing: Bush varieties - 8". Pole varieties - 3" apart (if trellising in rows rather than growing on teepees).
Watering: Water less when planting (so that seeds don't rot in the ground), then increase to average watering when the plants flower. Increase to heavier watering during harvest time.
Special Considerations: If young bean plants are attacked by insects, don't give up! Bean plants are surprisingly resilient and will often grow into big, healthy plants despite initial pest damage.
