Plant in a sunny, well-draining location. Beans like to be watered regularly, but do not like soggy soil. Plant the seeds after the last risk of frost has past. The ideal temperature for germination is 20-30 degrees C. For faster germination you can soak the seeds for 30 minutes before sowing. Spacing: Sow beans 1″ deep, 3″ apart in rows 18″ apart.
