Q.Planting Bush Lima Beans

Zone Eastern | lgaston added on May 2, 2012 | Answered

Simple question but important. We have beans to plant. How many beans do you put in a hole? We found the answers about everything but that, in case you can’t tell, this is our first experience with planting bush lima beans! LOL!

As a general rule of thumb: three. This allows for the possibility of at least one not germinating or being eaten (by birds, etc.). Once they come up and reach about 6 inches height, you can thin it down to the strongest plant (or two).

all beans are super easy to grow and almost every bean sprouts so only put on in each whole about a half inch down and about 3 inches apart. I don't know where you are at but as long as its above 50 degrees fair and height and won't be droping below they should be ok
