The Proper Planting and Density of Legumes

Plant legume seeds, such as peas, green beans and string beans, 1 inch deep in moist soil. Bush-type beans, like the red or kidney bean, need to be sown 2 to 4 inches apart in rows 18 to 24 inches apart. Pole bean varieties, like the string bean, should be planted four to 6 inches apart and in rows 30 to 36 inches apart.
