Companion planting Beans - All beans and peas are members of the legume family. They all fix nitrogen in the soil that other plants may find beneficial. However this only happens after the bean plants have died and rotted into the soil. So companion planting beans with other nitrogen greedy plants is detrimental to both crops. Never grow any Alliums (onions, garlic, leeks chives etc…) near beans as these are nitrogen hungry plants and will compete with the beans for nutrients resulting in poor crops from both. Also keep peppers and chillies away from beans because of the threat of the Anthracnose virus for more information see full post. Having said that there are plants that will be advantageous to plant with beans. Grow summer savory, nasturtiums and rosemary along side beans to deter the bean beetle. By following these few simple guide lines you can improve the conditions for growth immensely and benefit from a healthier, larger crop.
