Beans are an excellent choice for any gardener, as they serve a wide variety of benefits apart from plain old deliciousness. Beans are nitrogen fixing plants, meaning that they will take nitrogen from the air, and work with bacteria in the soil to reintroduce important nutrients for growing plants. It’s recommended to plant these after the main growing season, even if you won’t eat the beans! These particular variety produces stringless green beans, in a “pole”, meaning a trellis is required for growing.
Beans are very easy to grow. They enjoy warmer temperatures, so if your intention is eating, plant them when the soil is warm. They enjoy full sun. They can be planted in any kind of soil, from poor to rich.
