It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant when all
danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed. For best results, loosen
soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake.
Firm soil over seed and keep moist. Plant bush types every 3 weeks.
Harvesting: For fresh limas, pick as soon as beans begin to fill pod. To dry, leave pods on plants until partially dry, then pull plants and hang in a warm, dry, airy place until dry.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
