Pole beans should be planted with some sort of support, ie. netting, trellis or fence. Beans need a warmer soil to germinate, at least 15 C (60F), cold soil can actually cause permanent shock to plants and they never recover. Sow in rows 75 cm (30 in) apart when danger of frost is past, 3 to 5 cm (1 to 2 in) deep and 15 cm (6 in) apart. Press down soil and keep moist till germination. Thin seedlings to 30 cm (12 in) apart. Several sowing ten days apart insure a fresh supply till frost. Bean roots are close to surface, do not cultivate too deep. 50 gram packet sows 10 m (33 ft) row. For best results use Nature’s Aid Legume Inoculant, an organic non-chemical product which enhances root growth and yield.
