Grow Your Own Green Beans


Green beans are a tasty and nutritious vegetable that you can grow in your own garden. Green beans are a snap to grow and will reward you with plenty of tasty harvests. In this blog, we’ll explore the ins and outs of growing green beans. After reading it, you will be ready to start your own harvest!

Facts about green beans

Green beans are a legume. This means that they are related to peas, soybeans and lentils—but unlike their cousins, green beans have a crunchy pod. They are also high in fiber and provide vitamins A and C. Green bean varieties can be grown in almost any climate with the proper variety selection (as long as you don’t live somewhere too hot) because they grow best when temperatures range between 60-75 degrees F during the day and 55-60 degrees F at night.

They’re also very nutritious: each cup of cooked green beans provides about half your daily requirement for iron!

Preparing your garden

  • Prepare the soil
  • Dig up a trench, it should be about 6 inches deep and 12 inches wide.
  • Add compost or manure to the bottom of the trench and mix it into the dirt.
  • Plant your seeds about 1 to 2 inches apart from each other (depending on how many you have).
  • Prepare your garden

Growing your green beans

Growing your green beans is a fairly straightforward process. Plant the seeds in a sunny spot and water regularly. Once they start to sprout, keep the soil moist and fertilize regularly. When the plants are about 4 inches long, harvest by cutting off each stem at its base with a pair of scissors or sharp pruning shears. Don’t forget to remove any yellowing or diseased leaves along with excess root system; this will help prevent disease from spreading throughout your garden later on.

Caring for your green beans

Growing green beans is a lot of work, but it’s also very rewarding. The steps below will help you care for your plants and ensure they grow strong and healthy.

  • Keep your soil moist. Beans need a consistently moist environment to thrive, so make sure their pots are well-drained and that they’re watered daily. Check the moisture level with your finger before watering; if it feels dry at all, give them some more water!
  • Keep the bean plants well fertilized. Beans need nitrogen in order to grow properly, so consider using an organic fertilizer like seaweed extract or compost tea (see How To Make Compost Tea).
  • Keep the bean plants well weeded around them—otherwise they may not get enough nutrients from the soil! It can be hard to spot weeds when there are already so many other things going on with your garden, but try looking closely at any part where there might be bare patches or browning leaves; these are likely signs of weeds taking over!
