How to Grow French Beans

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

Sow bean seeds in pots
French and runner beans are sensitive to frost, so sow them inside, one to each pot. Set the pots on a tray in a warm, sunny spot, and water the seedlings regularly; do not let them dry out. Plant them outdoors once all the risk of frost has passed.
