Dwarf beans very short!

I’m brand new to grow your own and need some advice re my dwarf beans. They germinated perfectly well but since planting out have barely grown in the last month. They are 7/8 inches tall at best. Any ideas? Thank you 😊

    Germination for me has been very poor this year.
    The warm weather and lack of rain hasn't helped many plants.
    The height you have is still ok and I assume you are watering them. They will get going but they do need the evening.

    I sowed mine in root trainers at the start of May and planted them out a week ago and they have grown at least another 3" in a week,it was the same with my sugar snap peas and they have grown like mad and are starting too come into flower,they were planted at the start of March and planted out in April,so I have found these root trainers very good indeed for germination ans sturdy plants for planting out and giving them a good start.
