Beans need a good amount of sun to produce well. Look for a spot that gets at least eight hours of sunlight each day.
Beans have shallow roots compared to many other vegetables, which means it is possible to grow them in smaller pots.
Beans are not overly picky about what they grow in. Like all legumes, they fix their own nitrogen and are better able to grow in low-nutrient conditions than other plants.
Beans are warm-season plants, which means they require warm soil to germinate. They are also less tolerant of cold weather and frost than other legumes such as snap peas.
Once the plants begin to flower, it is especially important to keep the soil constantly moist. If the plants get too dry, they will drop flowers.
