Are green beans easy to grow in your garden?

    Green beans are among the easiest vegetables to grow in gardens, provided you wait until the soil warms up before trying to start them outside.  If you try to start them before the soil warms up, you’ll get spotty germination, and the seedlings will grow very slowly, making them more susceptible to pests like snails and slugs. 

    If you start them after the soil warms up, they grow quickly and start producing green beans 5-6 weeks after planting them.  This makes them an excellent plant for kids’ gardens.  Bush beans produce earlier and don’t require trellises for support.  Pole beans produce later, have higher yields, and need bamboo poles or trellises to climb on.  The web site below has good information on growing green beans.
