When to Plant:

  • Plant your beans after the last frost in the Spring. Ideally, your soil temperature will be around 60-70 degrees F.

How to Plant:

  • Pole and runner bean plants grow bigger than their bush bean cousins, so they need more space.
  • Pole and runner bean seeds need 3 feet (91cm) between rows and 7 to 12 inches (18 to 33cm) between plants.
  • If you want your pole or runner bean plants to vine up a tepee-shaped support, dig holes in the corners of a 3 foot square (91cm), and plant 3 pole bean seeds in each.
  • Maypoles, arches and natural supports, such as sweet corn, are often used to support the vines of pole and runner beans.
  • Pole and runner bean seeds should be planted 1 inch (2.5cm) deep in clay soil and 1.5 inches (3.75cm) deep in sandy soils.
  • Pole bean seeds need soil temperatures to reach 65F (18C) to sprout reliably.
  • Runner beans typically grow better in colder areas than pole or bush beans.

When to Harvest:

  • It only takes about 60 days for your pole or runner beans to go from seeds to table.
  • You can harvest your beans when the pods are swollen and look full.
  • If you delay on picking your pods, they can begin to taste bitter.

If you’re having a beetle infestation in your bean plants, you can spray the plants with a light mist of soapy water to deter them.
