Description for French Beans
Foliage grows well in shade, but plants need good sun for best flowering.
It blooms on new growth, so early spring pruning will not affect the flowering.
Vines must be grown on sturdy structures because mature plants produce considerable weight.

Planting and care

Plants grown in weak sun may not die at once, but they weaken gradually.
Give them plenty of organic matter when planting and donâ€™t crowd them.Wear sturdy gloves to protect your hands from prickly thorns.

Caring for French beans
- Feed plants on a regular basis before and throughout the blooming cycle (avoid chemical fertilizers and pesticides if youâ€™re harvesting for the kitchen).
- Once a month between April and July, apply a balanced granular fertilizer (5-10-5 or 5-10-10).
- Allow Â¾ to 1 cup for each bush, and sprinkle it around the drip line, not against the stem.
