I will be planting heirloom bush green beans and wax beans. What other plants are beneficial to plant nearby? Just like when I plant marigolds near my tomatoes. This will be my first try at beans. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

nasturtiums are a good one for almost any other type of veggie to be used as a companion plant. peas do better with carrots in the same bed. beets do well with onions.

you can also eat nasturtiums the flowers/leaves or seeds they have a peppery taste to them, think you could save the seeds and grind them up like pepper.

totally forgot about the 3 sisters, you plant corn squash and green beans together in the same hill. the green beans grow up the corn stalk and help support it the squash provides shade for the roots of the corn and beans and slows evaporation of moisture from the soil. together they are stronger and healthier.
