Beans are a popular plant for home gardeners, and it's easy to see why; they aren't difficult to grow and they produce large harvests. Bush and pole bean varieties differ in the amount of room needed in the garden. Pole beans can climb upwards to save space when grown up a trellis or other support, while bush beans take up a bit more space in rows on the ground.
Planting, Growing, and Harvesting:
Direct sow bush bean seeds in well-drained soil, after the risk of frost is over. Choose a sunny location and plant the seeds in rows. The plants in these rows will help support each other as they grow. If planted in a windy area, bush beans may benefit from added support. Bush bean plants usually grow between 1-2' tall.
To harvest green beans, pick pods when they are young and tender; before seeds inside fully develop. If you want to harvest dry bean seeds, you can allow them to mature and dry on the plant before picking.
