Beans are an ancient staple crop grown throughout North and South America. Sow bean seeds 1-2 inches deep in full sun, when danger of frost is past. Soaking for 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Beans will rot if soil is cold or very wet. Sow bush types 6-12 inches apart in beds; pole beans 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for pole types. Harvest for snaps when pods are good-sized; keep snaps well-picked, as production slows as seed matures. Strings will develop in over-mature pods in any variety. For dry beans leave pods on the plants until dry, or pick when leathery, and dry indoors.
Flower or vegetable? It's both! Green, broad oval leaflets forma a dense, yet delicate backdrop of large, showy sprays of flaming red flowers followed by foot long, edible pods. Pick the pods often to promote continued blooms. Hummingbirds love the flowers. Vines quickly and brilliantly cover porch, arbor, fence, trellis, walls, and other garden structures. An easy-to-grow plant that you will really enjoy. Approx. 20 seeds/pack. Mature height 10-12 foot vines.
