Hi everyone,

The book says nine green bean plants per square foot.  Is this realistic?  Has anyone done this?

Thanks

I did 4 per square yellow wax bush beans last year because the Baker Creek package said space 4 to 6 inches.

I've used the sowing information off the packet for our type of green bean ..which is called , "  French Dwarf Green Bean " .. they grow to about 10 inches high and the spacing is nine inches between plants .

 I simply planted a double row with alternate spacings right across the front of one of my three foot by three foot raised beds rows nine inches apart . We had so many beans even after freezing & pickling them in small batches as well as eating them fresh that  I was chucking the unwanted excess in the compost bin so as to keep the plants producing right up until the first really cold weather . 

 So I suggest you go &  read the spacing info on the packet if it's there ,  as it might be a different strain of bean to most common ones .

Very realistic.  For bush bean or pea varieties, 9/square.  For vining bean or pea varieties, 8/sq in two rows of 4.  Dragon Tongue bush: How many green beans per square foot? Bean_d10

Thanks everyone for the feedback.  I'll check the spacing on the seed packet and adjust accordingly.  Maybe I'll start with four per square this year and see how that works.  Remember, starting slow for my first year!

If you have enough squares why not experiment with both 4 and 9 per square?

TD and Sanderson - I like your thinking!  As I wrote my reply I wondered how many years of experimentation is this going to take?  You just cut it in half!  I want to grow both green and lima beans and I've started half indoors and plan to sow the others outdoors.  I planned two squares for each, so this will work very well!

Very Happy

I grow pole beans exclusively.  On a trellis.  Used to grow bush beans, and they were really great!  Keep us posted!

I put in 9/SF bush yellow Cherokee beans a couple weeks ago direct seeded, and I put 6/SF on a trellis pole beans.

Will you post pics when the plants are grown? I would like to see the result. Thanks

Yep!  I have done them both spaced like this.  It’s tight, but if there is plenty of compost, they do great!  And they fix the square for a heavy feeder for next season!
