How to Grow French Beans

Learn how to grow French beans — plus climbing runner beans — to create a productive vegetable addition to your garden.

Tie stems
Plant one seedling at the base of each cane and tie the stem to it, until it takes hold by itself. You can also sow bean seeds directly into the soil in the late spring, after the frosts. If you do, plant two seeds per cane in case one fails to grow. If both come up, weed out the weakest.
