Approximately 60-150 seeds per ounce unless otherwise noted.  Please check descriptions on large beans for numbers of seed.  Beans vary greatly in size.

Site SelectionBeans grow best in full sun and well-drained, fertile, and friable (crumbly) soil so seedling emergence is not inhibited. Crop rotation is an imperative practice for beans to avoid disease problems. Rotate crops by alternating the location of bean plantings with a different crop each year.

Fertilization:  A moderate amount of a good manure in the soil before you plant your beans should be fine.  Heavy applications of should be avoided as excess nitrogen causes lush foliar growth and few bean pods. In light or sandy soils, a side-dressing of fertilizer may be needed after heavy rainfalls. The fertilizer should be applied alongside the growing row once flowering and pod set begin.

Planting:  Beans should be planted after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Poor germination and rot are likely if the soil temperature is below 50 deg. F.
