Beans are one of the easiest garden plants to grow, mainly because they aren’t very picky. Your soil doesn’t have to be perfect, just 3-4 inches of fairly loosened soil is usually enough to get your beans started. It is best to direct sow your bean seed after the last frost of the season, when the soil is about 60 degrees F. Pole beans are climbers, so they will need plenty of support to grow tall. You can use anything from a trellis to a simple teepee made of bamboo poles and your beans will climb right to the top. Planting 4 beans in a single square foot space will work because they can each have their own pole upon which to grow.
TIP: Soak your beans overnight before planting and they will germinate much faster.
Pole beans are preferred over bush-type beans in urban gardens because they take up less ground space and produce early and well. It is often said that the more you pick beans, the more they grow! When watering bean plants, water them as close to the ground level as possible to avoid some of the more common diseases that can be spread to bean plants.
