Plant 1" deep in hills 3' apart each way, 5 or 6 beans in a hill, then set 6' high rough poles into each hill. When plants are established, thin to 3 or 4 strongest plants in each hill. If you plant in rows, space seeds 4" apart in rows 2' apart and use our Trellis Netting for vine support. Stake the netting every 3' to prevent sagging. Pick frequently, as pole beans are prolific, and will continue to bear until frost. One-half pound of pole beans plants 10-40 poles, depending on seed size. For best results, innoculate beans at time of planting with Nature's Aid Rhizobia Inoculant. A packet contains 2 oz. unless otherwise stated.
