Give plants even, regular water, but do not over-water.
} Jun 27, Here's how I've seen this problem solved -- after planting the beans, place an arc of concrete reinforcing wire over the row. The plants grow up through the wire, and are supported by it.
If you checked the black spots carefully and they were not insects, then the plant likely has developed a bacterial disease; bacterial infections commonly spread via the water-conducting vessels in the plant; that would explain the sudden collapse.
It keeps them from falling over, and keeps beans off the ground. It probably also helps with air circulation, which reduces the chance of disease. Best of luck. Turn a tomato cage upside down and put that over the plant (big circle on bottom) the smaller circles will hold and support the rest of the plant. I do this for my squash, zucchini, beans, cuks - any big bush plant.

Again, this is caused by cold temperatures. The seedlings might eventually start growing, but you’re probably better off taking them out and replanting them in warm soil. The seedlings fall over and die. Check the treehaul.clubs: Do not eat treated seeds. Figure 1. Plant bush beans on rows that are 2½ to 3 feet apart. For bush beans, plant the seeds about 1 inch deep and 1 to 2 inches apart in the row (Fig.
1). The rows should be 2½ to 3 feet apart. After the beans have sprouted, thin the plants to 3 to 4 inches apart (Fig. 2). Figure 2. Apr 02, Bush bean plants are usually ready to harvest in roughly a month after planting whereas pole bean plants produce beans over a longer period of time but are slower to get started.
Green beans are space savers.
By the mid- to late summer, bean plants will start to look tired. However, as you head into the fall, it's not too late to try for another bean treehaul.clubted Reading Time: 3 mins.
