How To Grow Hyacinth Bean Vine: Many gardeners recommend nicking the Hyacinth Bean seeds with a knife and then soaking the flower seeds in water for 24 hours before sowing. Planting Hyacinth Bean seeds can be done directly outside once the danger of frost has passed. Lablab typically blooms from mid-summer to autumn. This vine can be a perennial in zones 9 - 11 which do not get frost; however, in other zones, it grows as an annual climbing vine.
