Excerpt from Peter Henderson and Co: Manual of Everything for the Garden, 1899
These are more tender and require rather more care in culture than the Bush varieties, and should be sown two weeks later. They succeed best in sandy loam, which should be liberally enriched with w... ell-rotted manure in the hills, which are formed. According to variety, from three to four feet-apart from five to six seeds are planted in each hill, about two inches deep. As the matured bean is mostly used, the season is too short for succession crops in the North, though it is advantageous to plant succession crops in the Southern States, where the season of growth is often from March to November. Bough cedar or similar poles about seven or eight feet long should be used for Pole Beans, especially the Limas, to climb on. They should be set in the ground at least eighteen inches, so as to prevent being blown over.
