French beans are suitable and easy to grow in small gardens. French beans are smaller than common green beans and have a softer pod.
They come in a variety of colours: green French bean, cream French beans, yellow French beans, flecked French beans and purple French beans.
There are two types of French Beans:
Climbing French beans. These type need a support to climb up. The traditional method is to grow them in a double row of canes or wigwams.
Dwarf French beans. This type only grow to abut 45cm. tall and are best grown in small blocks, where neighbouring plants provide support.
