Sow from mid-May to mid-July in rows 40–50 cm apart. Seed at 5–8 cm spacing about 1 cm deep. Never seed too deep; as they say, “Beans must hear the bells ringing.” Help germination by lightly raking with a fine toothed rake and, later, hill the plants twice. Harvest early and you can double crop. Beans do well intercropped with crops like beets, leeks, celery, and radish. Gardeners Tip: Soak seeks for twelve hours in lukewarm chamomile tea before sowing.
