Am going to try growing some pole lima beans....I have 2 types - King of
the Garden + Christmas ...... Have about 32' X 4' area along a fence, so
two rows.... Question....
How tall should trellis be?
Do I need to inoculate lima beans? Where to buy inoculant? How does one
inoculate lima beans?
Have lots of composted cow manure.......would this work with lima beans?
I haven't grown those varieties so the best answer may be somewhat different
but for the ones I have grown about 2 m (6 1/2ft) is good. If it is too
short they hang down off the top too much, to tall you need a ladder.
I don't think so, I have never innoculated beans and they do very well.
As high as you can reach, no taller and no shorter.
If you made it as tall as they were able to grow, you'd need a ladder
to pick them. But make it as tall as you dare, otherwise there is too
If your soil has never been innoculated it *may* be *slightly* worth
the money to get some but if you already have the seed, don't bother.
You would probably have to get it mail order; I don't believe I have
seen any recently in any garden center. You can sprinkle it in the
furrow before you put in the seeds.
