Bush beans thrive in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. They can be planted in the spring after all danger of frost has passed – but don’t be fooled into thinking that’s the only time to plant them. Beans are ideal for succession planting. Plant beans after you have harvested spring veggies like salad greens or peas, or plant new beans every three weeks to keep fresh beans in your garden all summer. For variety, plant beans of different colors. These look amazing in the garden and may entice your little ones to eat their veggies, too.
