Blue Lake Bush Bean Seeds May be Treated binC3

Blue Lake Bush Bean Seeds 
Also called snap beans, this is THE Bush Bean           (Seeds May Be Treated)                                                                                                     
They're easy to plant, they don't need any time consuming staking, trellising, or poling because they grow on compact, sturdy plants, they grow well even in poor soil, and have ready-to-eat pods in only seven or eight weeks. 

They used to be called "string" beans because of the fibrous string that ran the length of the pods, but now with improved varieties, they are really "stringless " beans!

The reason most gardeners prefer growing bush beans to pole beans is because although they take up more space, they require less work planting, staking, weeding and watering, and bush beans produce most of their crop all at once. 

This makes harvesting very fast and convenient because by getting all your beans at once it's helpful for freezing or canning. Also, by staggering planting times by a few weeks you can have continuous bean production all summer long.

So, because green beans are the fourth most popular summer vegetable grown by home gardeners (tomatoes, cucumbers and sweet peppers beating them out) we are going to give you 10 tips that are guaranteed to bring you the best, tastiest, and most productive bush bean crop ever.

Plus, at the end of this article, we have a chart of bush beans giving you 22 of the most favorite varieties grown by professional and home gardeners alike.
