You can germinate the seeds indoor or in the greenhouse from around May, and then move the small plants into the garden around June. However, you can also easily grow them directly in the garden soil from June. The beans require sunlight and warmth - in return you'll get plenty of beans. The more you harvest, the more beans the plant grows.
