Vine beans can grow up to 15 feet long and need trellises, stakes, or fences to grow on for support. Pole varieties produce more beans than bush types and are generally more disease-resistant. Pole beans grow over a period of time, providing fresh beans for several weeks. As they are picked, they produce more.

Plant bean seeds after all danger of frost has passed, and soil temperature is 48F minimum. Plants need 6-8 hours of sunlight per day. Plant seeds 1” deep in mounds with 3-4 seeds in each at the base of your trellis or support. Make sure the support is set-up before you plant the seeds so the roots aren't disturbed by doing it later. Arrange supports at least 6” apart.

Water deeply and regularly. Weed carefully as they have shallow roots. Make sure you will be around when they are ready as they will not stay well on the plants once they are mature. Beans always need to be picked straight away and will not wait until you are ready! If they are left to sit on the vine for more than 2 days, they will not taste great.
