Q.Disposal of Nitrogen-Fixing Plants

Anonymous added on August 19, 2012 | Answered

My green beans have finished producing and I want to remove the plants from my garden. Should I shear off the tops and leave the roots in the soil, or pull the whole plant out?

If the plants were healthy all season, I would simply till them under the soil to help fertilize the soil for next planting season.
