Last spring/summer, I grew pole beans that had to be latticed so this year, I'm attempting the bush variety. I cannot seem to find a good picture of what the plant looks like in whole. I guess what I am not understanding is that the packet says to plant them 3" apart in rows 18" apart, but says nothing about thinning them. Do they really grow 3" apart or does that not give them enough room?
Yes they grow well at 3-4 inches apart. Lots of pictures in plantfiles. This is the bush snap bean Espada, but most of the bush snap beans will similar. Half runners of course are a much bigger plant, but still perform well at 3-4 inches
