Fertilizing Pole Beans
I realize pole beans don't need much fertilizer when planted but what about later in the year. I planted rattlesnake beans starting on 4/21 with a succession planting every week for 4 weeks. I have since learned that one week apart is not long enough between plantings.
I have picked buckets and buckets of beans. Production has slowed down. I have to decide whether to pull the plants or wait and see if they will flower and produce again. I won't need the space for another 45 days when I will plant English peas in the fall. If I leave them in, should I supplement them with fertilizer now. When I planted them in April I used compost and a balanced fertilizer but have not added any fertilizer since planting.
