How to Plant a Bean

    • 1). Clear weeds and plant debris from a spot in your established garden where the bean seedling will get full sunshine for eight hours a day, and quick drainage. The plant won't flower or bear fruit if it sits in the shade of a taller plant. If you're planting a bush bean, give it 1 square foot of space. If you're planting a pole bean, give it 2 square feet of garden space.

    • 2). Dig into the top 6 inches of soil in the site and mix 1 inch of loam and 1 inch of organic compost into your natural soil. Beans need rich, crumbly soil so they have room for root expansion. If your soil is still thick or pale after this amendment, add another inch of organic compost. Mix 5-10-10 fertilizer into the top 6 inches of soil for additional nutrition.

    • 3). Plant a bean seed 1 inch deep. Water the bean with 2 inches of water to settle the soil.

    • 4). Spread 2 inches of mulch on the soil around your planting to maintain moisture and warmth for the bean. Organic mulch will break down over time, so add another 1/2 inch of mulch every month throughout the season.
