Planting & Care

Planting: In the Spring, once weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Poke seeds in 1" deep and 4" apart in rows 1-1/2' to 2' apart. Make several sowings 2 weeks apart until the end of June to provide continued harvests.

Growing: Tender, crispy garden beans are an easy reliable crop to grow, but don't plant seeds too early as cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are often attracted to young bean seedlings, so watch carefully and protect with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.

Harvest & Use: The vigorous plant sbear strong harvests of top quality pods that hold well without getting stringy. The more you pick the more the plants will produce, and the nitrogen fixing bacteria on the roots of the bean plants actually improves your soil. Sow another crop about 3 weeks after your first planting and you'll have a welcome second harvest in late Summer. Slenderette beans are wonderful for quick cooking, they freeze well, or use them to make jars of tasty pickled dilly beans!
