dwarf french beans in containers

Well hello, Vivienne (always wanted to say that since I saw 'Pretty Woman) 

Anyway, dwarf beans do grow well in pots.....and to answer your question, about 18in diameter pot would be required, planting them about 6in between plants.

Too early for beans?

Yes, Clarington......I've used all manner of things over the years One that proved very cheap & effective was old net curtains hung in place with those stretchy, plastic covered curtain wires.

I shade mine from the inside of the greenhouse too and it works fine for me....shading from the outside involves its own problems during high winds.

Of course, the Victorians had a the right idea when the used teak slated rolls that could be rolled up or down as required.

Another option would be to remove he top half, then use the next side-shoot to form another top.
