Growing Fava Beans in a Pot

Can you give pointers for planting fava beans in a gallon container?

Reply: Plant a bean that has already begun to sprout 2 inches under soil level (with a short tail … point the tail down slightly. It will become the root and a second shoot will come out right beside it & head upward and get leaves . Leave room at the top of the pot to fill more soil in around it for support and cooler root temperature, and room for some mulch I would leave maybe 6 inch at top of pot empty for now. You also have to have room for water so that it doesn’t run over the top when it rainsĀ  and wash a lot of your soil away….

LOTS TO CONSIDER WHEN PLANTING FAVA BEANS IN A POT.

Also make sure it has drainage holes in the bottom if using a bucket…drill large holes in it for drainage. Hope that helps.

Have a blessed day.
