In addition to Errol, beans do not make very good transplants, especially pole beans, they should be directly sown. Also, at what point are you adding fertilizer? You could be adding it too soon to your tender plants. The fertilizer could cause the roots to burn. I direct sown beans last year and noticed that my beans germinated, but never made there way out of the soil. I soon realized that I did not need manure and that it burned my seeds.

Try using a good mix of potting soil and compost. If you must use fertilizer, add it once the true leaves have sprouted on your plants. Hope the information helps.

Happy Gardening!
