Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:
Beans are not cold tolerant and need warm soil of 65° or higher. They grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.
Avoid planting in soil that stays wet. Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.
Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5. This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur.
Try wide row growing for bush beans. Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one. Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width. You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you’ll save on water.
