*Fungicide-treated seeds protect the seedlings from diseases until they are up and growing. Do not eat treated seeds.
**Seeds are freshly packed for the growing season of the year listed. Seeds are still viable beyond pack date. Store in a cool and dry location such as the refrigerator or basement to best preserve germination rates.
Soil Preparation:Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.
In the Spring, plant beans after all danger of frost has passed. In the Fall, plant beans 10 to 12 weeks before the first expected frost. Plant runner beans in hills about 2 feet apart in the row. Set strong poles, strings, or a trellis in rows to support heavy ~15' vines. Place a 6-8-foot stake in the center of each hill. Space the rows about 3 feet apart. Plant 3-4 seeds around the stake or trellis about 1 inch deep in the soil. Thin to 2 plants per trellis. Planting in moist soil is best for seeds to germinate and emerge quickly.
