Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Hyacinth Bean Vine

Philadelphia, PA(Zone 6b)

Geez..this vine already crapped out for me! They started nicely from seeds, now I have seed pods forming and not much growth, with more leaf loss. They're in full sun, good soil with nitrogen, no bugs but they aren't growing as I had expected...pooh!

Deep South Coastal, TX(Zone 10a)

They're beans, they like poor soil. i may have a few seeds left if you need more. they should do good planted directly in the ground.

Allen Park, MI(Zone 6a)

I've been starting seeds for years.
I didn't have any luck with them either.
I dont know what happened I think I'll take Calaliyies advice and plant the seeds directly into the soil; outside.


Deep South Coastal, TX(Zone 10a)

I started some in cell packs and then transplanted into the garden. They finally got about three feet high. I had one bean to come up where I had them the year before. It must have been 20 or more feet long and bloomed like crazy. That's all I can figure out that was different.

i had one indoors a couple of years ago,grew really tall,throught the blinds on the conservatory roof,not many leaves,about 2 flowers i didnt bother with it again
it looked so good in the books...
