Sowing

  • French Bean Seeds can be sown throughout the year.
  • French Bean seeds can be sown directly in containers or on raised beds.
  • You can use big-sized circular pots or grow bags with 16” diameter and a minimum depth of 8-10 inches to grow French Bean.
  • Make sure the container of your choice has uniform drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill this container with a growing medium of your choice.
  • Sow 2 seeds at the center of your container.
  • On raised beds, sow two seeds per spot keeping a distance of 2 x 2 ft.
  • Push French bean seeds in the medium with your finger and cover the seeds with the surrounding soil.
  • Water the sown seedbed immediately by a light shower using a watering can.
  • Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium.

Caring

  • Your French bean seeds will germinate within the first 6-8 days.
  • Tiny seedlings will appear at this stage.
  • The second week onwards, seedlings will start growing into a small French bean plant.
  • After the seance week, keep only one seedling at one spot.
  • Cut off small, weak, and lagging seedlings with a pair of scissors.
  • French Bean plant needs full sunlight in order to thrive. Make sure you keep your containers in a sunny spot and make your raised beds also in a spot that receives ample sunlight.
  • Water your potted French bean plant every alternate day in winter & every day in summer.
  • Use a watering can to make sure your plant gets water in the form of a shower. You can alternately also use a drip irrigation system.
  • When your French bean plant is more than 45 days old, feed a handful of Vermicompost in the soil around each plant.
  • Keep a watch for early signs of any insect/fungal or any other infections. Use appropriate medicines if you notice any of these signs.
    In the second month, your French bean plant will start flowering.
  • Fresh pods can be harvested 45 to 50 days after sowing the seeds. Harvesting season can continue for the next three months.
  • Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deeply.

Common Problems:

My French beans are not growing big.
French Bean needs proper sunlight to grow. However, exposure to too much sunlight or very high temperatures can have adverse effects on the growth of your beans. Extremely high temperatures can lead to stunted French beans.

Why are my French bean seeds not germinating?
Improper growing conditions, like not enough sunlight, sowing your seeds in too deep, overwatering or under watering can affect the germination process of your seeds. Seeds will fail to germinate under such conditions.

Why are the leaves of my French bean plant turning yellow?
There are a few reasons why your bean plant’s leaves are turning yellow. A major cause of yellowing leaves is insufficient sunlight. Overwatering also is another factor. Overwatering leads to root rot, which causes the yellowing of leaves. At times a nitrogen deficiency also can turn the leaves of your plant yellow. Determine the cause of the yellow leaves first and then follow appropriate remedies
