Growing Beans in Pots
Green bean plant has several names across the globe such as English Bean and French Bean. Its close relative, the French Bean or Cajeput, is also used in some countries in Africa and in Asia.
The plant’s common name, the Cajeput, is derived from the Aba abelia plant (also known as the Abraxia or Bursera cajeputii plant). This plant is native to Central America and the Caribbean Islands, and it has been used as an ornamental and medicinal herb since at least 200 BC.
The green bean plant is related to the French bean plant and the Bean family, the Solanaceae. The edible fruits of this plant are called unripe beans and are grown all over the world for their unripe berries. The main groups of edible beans, according to geographical usage, are pod beans, dry beans and snap beans.
The green bean plant grows about four feet tall, with dark green leaves, and white flowers, which come in shades of blue and red. The berries, usually oval in shape but sometimes oblong, vary from a dark orange or reddish color to a pale yellow or green. The seed inside the bean capsule is pale green in color. A green bean plant can be grown in full sun or partial shade in any garden.
When growing a bean plant, you need to have plenty of sunlight and regular watering to encourage the plant’s growth and development. If you do not provide sufficient water, your bean plant will wither and die before you harvest the fruits.
Bean plants require good drainage in order to grow properly and to develop healthy roots. They can be grown in containers and raised beds. In containers, plants are best planted on thick, sturdy soil to prevent soil compaction, while in raised beds they should be placed away from fences, walls and other structures that may hinder drainage. For containers, use medium-sized stones in the base of the pot and layer the plants on top of these stones.
Planting bean plants in containers may require pruning, especially if you have plants that are prone to spreading and can easily take over one another. In general, pruning is very important, as cutting down too many of your plants will leave the plant lacking nutrients, and water needed by roots.
If you plan to use your bean plants in containers for ornamental purposes, you will need to water your plants well before and after each transplanting. Watering should be done during the day time in your garden, not just while the plants are still wet.
Before starting to repot bean plants in pots, you need to make sure they are completely dried out. This is especially important if you are going to report more than one bean at a time. Once they are dry out, they can tolerate some spotting during winter, so make sure they are completely dried out before you start.
You should remove all the flowers from the bean plant before repotting in the fall. If you do not want to remove the entire flower pod, you can cut off the tip of the bean pod, which contains the flower buds, but do not remove the actual bean pod.
When it comes to pruning the bean plant, it is recommended to prune only when the leaves of the plant are beginning to change colors. In general, pruning is done every two to three years. If the plant has been grown for long periods, you may wish to prune them less often. In general, it is better to prune after the fourth or fifth year of growth, although if you have started plants indoors, you may not need to prune them as often as you would in an outdoor location.
There are two basic types of bean plants, namely the wetland bean, which are native to Central America and the Mediterranean, and the desert bean, which are native to South America. There are other varieties, but these are two of the most popular, and each type can be grown in a garden. The wetland bean prefers rich soil and should be watered regularly. The desert bean likes sandy soil and requires less water.
Most beans require about one inch of water per day. It is best to provide your bean plants with this much water during summer, and less water in the spring and autumn. If you have the option, try to grow them in containers where the water is kept in a small reservoir until the bean plants need it.
