I sowed some bean seeds. Why didn’t they come up?

Answer: Beans need warm temperatures for good germination. Don’t be tempted to plant them too early. The seeds are capable of absorbing quite a lot of water and can rot away readily, so keep watering to a minimum. Handle bean seeds gently: the seeds are surprisingly fragile and the growing point is easily damaged.
