I have had a lot of trouble growing the green bean. This year I used an inoculant and have had a little better luck. I have read beans do better in slightly acid soil, 6.5 or so. I tested my soil before planting and it was between 7 7.5. Could this have that much effect and, if so, would adding a bit of sulfur powder to my soil be an answer?
