All beans prefer a sunny spot in well-drained soil that was improved with compost or well-rotted manure the autumn before sowing. A clever technique to boost growth is to create a compost trench. Dig out a trench about a foot (30cm) deep where your beans are to grow.
Where do beans grow best?
full sun Beans grow best in full sun, planted in well-drained and warm soil. While pole beans require trellising, bush beans can grow unsupported.

Do beans grow better outside or inside?
There are upsides and downsides to both types, of course: Bush beans generally require less maintenance and are easier to grow, but pole beans typically yield more beans for longer and are mostly disease-resistant. Bush beans produce in about 50 to 55 days; pole beans will take 55 to 65 days.
What climate do beans best grow in?
Beans are a warm weather plant that grow best when the air temperature warms in spring. The soil temperature should be no lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and preferably closer to 70 degrees F for best results with germination. Beans will not germinate if the temperatures are too cool.
Can you plant beans twice?
If you prefer two or three massive harvests to can or freeze green beans all at once, sow the entire bean patch at the same time. Harvest the first planting, then replant for a second and -- possibly -- third, late-season crop.
