Ed's Special Advice

Beans grow best in a sunny location, where the soil is warm, loamy and lightly fertilized. Cultivate shallow and frequently until flowers appear. Avoid disturbing plants after that time, as it could cause the blossoms to fall off. For continued harvest sow bush beans every two weeks until two months before first frost in fall. Water deeply by soaking soil.
