Runner beans

I would mist mid-morning. 

When I water my beans I give them half an hour with the sprinkler on them - they need a real soaking.  If the weather is hot and dry I would do that every day. 

Hope it helps

Sunshine has disappeared here to be replaced by slight drizzle - just after I'd had the sprinkler on the Shady Bank for half an hour.  Everything else has been given a good soaking and OH has his list.

I shall finish packing ........

Misting will help and a jolly good soaking at the roots will help even more.  They need damp toes
