Consequently, do you soak bush beans before planting?
Just like pole beans, bush green beansshould be soaked in a shallow container with warm waterover night to speed up the germination process. The bushbean seeds will swell up as they soak up some of thewater. Once the seeds have soaked overnight, drain out thewater.
Subsequently, question is, how long do bush beans take to grow? Bush beans germinate in six to 10 days. Somevarieties mature in as little as 50 days, but 60 days is moretypical. Extend the harvest by sowing seeds every two weeks untiltwo months before the first fall frost.
Correspondingly, do you need a trellis for bush beans?
Bush beans tend to grow more compactly (abouttwo-feet tall) and do not require support. Polebeans will vine (a good ten feet) and need to begrown up stakes or trellises.
