Runner Beans & French Beans

I have just planted up some beans indoors . They are approx 20cm high, it’s too early to plant them outside yet, but wondered if putting them in a little Greenhouse would be ok? Planning to plant out in around 2 -3 weeks time ...thoughts?

    I wouldn’t, not runner beans anyway, I sow on the 1st May,  keep them indoors, then start hardening off during the last week of May, plant out 1st June. 

    Ive never grown French Beans 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Yikes. I’ve planted both up have about 12 runners and 8 french beans.. #too early. 
    Will they. E ok to keep inside for a few weeks??

    As others have said, it depends on your location.  I planted mine out yesterday - SW Ireland
