Trouble getting Jeminez beans to sprout
I am getting poor germination for some reason. sowed 200 Jeminez beans in 2 inch net pots (indoors - one bean per pot, in coco coir with regulated bottom heat 80F) on March 23 and so far only 34 have sprouted. the beans were from a commercial supplier, packed for 2009.
have got good results with everything else (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, cukes, sugar snaps). The supplier has a solid reputation so maybe I am doing something wrong. or possibly Jeminez beans are just hard to sprout for some reason.
this is my first time to try pole beans and so do not know what to expect. what is a reasonable number of days to wait for these beans to take off?
