Bean plants grow best in reasonably fertile, well-drained soil into which plenty of well-rotted compost or manure (such as Orgro). We recommend that before planting, it's best to rake in a handful of general purpose fertiliser per square metre. French Beans don’t like heavy clay soil and need a neutral pH to thrive, so if your soil is very acidic you may need to dig in some lime also.
