    Soil and Nutrient Requirements: Beans require soils with average fertility. Choose well-drained, warm soils.

    Germination: 7 - 14 days at 22ºC. Temperatures below 15ºC will result in seed rot.

    Planting Depth: 1”.
    Spacing: Sow seeds 2 - 3'' apart in rows 15 - 24” apart. Thin to 4 - 6” once the first true set of leaves has developed.

    Growing in Containers: Passport beans are ideal for raised beds or medium to large-sized planters.

    Mixed Planters: Make sure to use a large planter, such as a barrel.

    Garden Companions: Beets, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, corn, eggplant, potato, radishes, kale, lettuce, peas, potatoes, swiss chard, and strawberry.
    Plants to Avoid: All members of the allium family (onions, leeks, garlic, scallions) and Kohlrabi inhibit growth in beans. Sunflowers will compete for light.

    Pest/Disease Issues: Aphids can be washed off plants with a hard stream of water. 

    Harvesting: Harvest early and often to increase yields. Remove oversized beans to maintain pod production.

    Suitability for Indoors: Beans are not well-suited for indoors but for those adventurous gardening types, Passport is the one to try.
