"Bush beans grow as a bush and take up more space than pole beans. They will produce more at one time. They take less care (watering, weeding, staking). They are good if you want to preserve your beans. I almost planted bush beans but I tried pole…"
I am a true believer of using natural fertilizers and insecticides. I have grown a successful garden by using natural products and companion plants except for my lettuce that I grow in bins. Any successful hints on how to grow romaine in bins without using the nitrogen pumped miracle grow? Water amounts? Sun?
