Plants to Avoid: All members of the allium family (onions, leeks, garlic, scallions) and Kohlrabi inhibit growth in beans. Sunflowers will compete for light.
Pest/Disease Issues: Aphids can be washed off plants with a hard stream of water.
Harvesting: Younger beans can be harvested as a snap bean, and enjoyed fresh. Otherwise, harvest at maturity.
Suitability for Indoors: Not suited for indoors.
