Top Crops for Pots
Norman A. Plate

Beans

Pot depth: 14 to 16 inches

Soil temperature (at planting time): At least 60ºF

Spacing: Direct-sow seeds 2–3 inches apart.

Pole beans are more productive over the long run than bush beans (which produce their crop all at once). Train the 6- to 8-foot-tall vines on a trellis or tepee made from bamboo poles. Try 'Blue Lake Pole', 'Helda' romano, or heirloom 'Kentucky Wonder'.
