How to germinate beans for planting in the ground

Those gardeners who are fond of growing beans know that before planting them in the ground, you must first prepare them. Beginners, on the other hand, are faced with the fact that they do not know how to germinate beans for planting in the ground, so that they give amicable shoots and a good harvest.

First you need to sort the seeds, separating too shriveled, damaged, moldy beans and various debris. The rest of the beans should be placed on a layer of damp cloth, covered with another layer of cloth on top and moistened with water. The fabric should be damp, but not wet, as excess water will cause the beans to rot. Bean seeds do not require much space, you can lay them in an even layer.

On the second or third day, tender sprouts will appear and then it will be possible to plant them in the ground. This must be done carefully so as not to damage the sprout.

Although beans are an unpretentious plant, they yield the best yield on neutral or slightly acidic soil, in an area protected from the wind. The sprouts are transplanted into the ground at a distance of about 20 centimeters between them. If planted in several rows, then the distance between them should be at least half a meter. When the groundwater is located on the site close to the fertile layer, the beans are best planted on the ridges, but if the soil warms up well, you can plant it just like that.

Caring for beans is simple - periodic loosening, weeding and abundant watering during drought and heat. Experts do not recommend sowing beans every year in one place. Bean roots can be left in the ground to enrich it with nitrogen and humus.
