Sow 2-3 seeds 1” deep and 2-3” apart in moist, organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Whether direct sowing or transplanting, thin out strongest starts to every 6-8” in the garden as true leaves establish. Pole bean requires immediate trellis support as seedlings will be looking to vine as soon as true leaves emerge. Plants thrive from a top layer of mulch to help cool soil and roots. Avoid nitrogen-rich fertilizers which will cause excessive vegetative growth with minimal bean pod production.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSeeds can be sown in a single row or in widely spaced rows. Use a trellis or a pole to support their upright growth habit by placing it just next to where the seed is planted.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAfter 50 to 80 days, pods will be ready for harvest. When it is time to pick the beans, the root can be pulled out of the ground to fully remove the plant, or pods can be picked off the vine individually.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eBlue Lake FM1K Pole Beans in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBlue Lake beans are world famous for reliability, disease resistance, flavor and high yields. This is basically the pole version of the famous bush type that is widely planted for the canning industry. If you like Kentucky Wonder you will be blown away by Blue Lake! These bright green beans are straight and reach up to 7\". Perfect for those who are tired of bending over to pick beans, but still want the high yield of a bush bean.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Blue Lake FM1K Pole Beans\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of pole bean are ready to harvest at about 70-80 days from sowing or once the pods are 3-5” long. Harvest often to encourage fruiting and to ensure pods do not dehydrate on the vine. Although some pods may pull cleanly from the vine, use a knife or shears for more fibrous pods to avoid accidental damage to the plant. Like many crops in the garden, it is widely believed that pole beans are best harvested in the morning for optimal sugar content.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Blue Lake FM1K Pole Bean Garden Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVines can grow up to 12 feet long!
