Bean - Provider (Bush)
Beans are one of the easiest crops to grow in the garden. They mature fast, provide lots of food, and don’t require much fertilizer.
Provider bush beans are great because they give you a stringless bean if not left on the plant for too long.
When to Plant:
- North Florida: March - November
- Central Florida October - April
- South Florida: October - April
Planting instructions: Plant in a spot with full sun and well-draining soil. Give each plant 3-5” of space between each other. It’s best to sow directly in the garden. Plant seeds about1” deep and water regularly.
Germination time: 14-21 Days
Days to Maturity: 50 - 60 days
Number of seeds per pack: 25+
Provider bush beans
I am very pleased with germination and rate of growth with these seeds from Fl Gardening. Will definitely purchase again! Thanks, Randy G
It was wonderful :)
Great fast sprout. Spaced out planting every two weeks. Already harvested one pound.
Lots of bean side dishes from our garden
These provider beans sprout quickly, bud quickly and produce quickly. Cut ripe beans to prompt new ones, but don’t plant them too late in the year. The plants produced enough beans to provide regular green bean side dishes throughout the spring and early summer, but the ones I planted later didn’t do so well. So it seems they don’t like the intense heat of late June, early July, or maybe it was the June drought that affected the ones I planted later. Either way, I plan on planting provider beans again in the early spring, as they live up to their name and provide enough beans for regular eating. We are very satisfied with this local product, as well as with the abundance of solid planting advice Josh provides.
