58 days to maturity6-12 days to sproutBush bean seeds per packet: About 190Bush bean seeds per 1/2 Lb: About 700Bush bean seeds per Lb: About 1,400Planting should be delayed until all danger of frost is over with a minimum soil temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit at 4 inch depth. Dwarfs are earliest and most hardy. In garden culture, beans are usually planted about 2 inches deep in rows 20 inches apart, and 3 inches apart in the row, in field culture, in drill rows 20 to 30 inches apart to cultivate with tractor. Until blossoming season, frequent but shallow cultivation should be given.Deep cultivation after the plants show bloom is very apt to ruin the crop. Do not disturb plants when covered with dew. One pound will plant 100 feet of drill, and sixty pounds is sufficient for one acre of dwarf bush types. Allow 50 foot row per person. To afford a regular succession of crops throughout the season, plant every two weeks after the first planting until midsummer.
