French beans, Phaseolus vulgaris, are delicious and easy to grow, and are a great choice for a small garden.  Just a few plants will yield a decent crop of beans. There's a range of varieties to try, producing green, yellow and purple beans, making them suitable for growing in ornamental borders. 

Phaseolus vulgaris 'Sansoucy' produces beans held high above the foliage. This makes them easier to find and harvest, and therefore less likely to succumb to slug or snail damage. 

Grow Phaseolus vulgaris 'Sansoucy' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Tender, don't plant them out until all risk of frost has passed. Protect young plants from slugs and snails.
