Care Tips/Maintenance

Beans have shallow roots, so using mulch on top of the soil can help hold moisture in and keep weeds down. Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your beans need water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.

Grow different types of beans for a constant supply and variety of these garden delicacies. The plants may stop producing beans at the hottest point of summer. When temperatures go back down, beans will again begin to grow. Beans are not bothered by many insects or diseases.
