Hello, im a first time container gardener. I have sprouts inside growing bigger everyday. I wanted to know when to plant out my pole beans, they are over 12 inches tall now. Im in Victoria, BC and the zones are different in each area it seems, but around zone 8. i also have zucchini and tomato and peppers. any tips would be most appreciated. thanks!

I am in Campbell River and my pole beans are almost as big as yours on my dining room table so I can't wait to put them out. I have been checking the weather the nights still go low and I have hardened them a bit putting them out in the day for a few hours. You are warmer than we are so I would think if you gave them a few days to harden and then put half out just to be sure. Victoria is always 3 weeks ahead of us and I am going to take the plunge really soon.
