you can start beans indoors if you want or need to. start seeds about two weeks before transplanting outside. beans need warmer soil to germinate. when you live where i do, it can take awhile for the soil to warm up. i have had some bad luck with the weather the last three years. cool rainy weather right after planting seeds outside prevented most seeds from germinating. the year i started seeds inside, we had a week of high 80s weather that stopped the plants from growing for a few weeks.
take some care when transplanting the beans to the garden. water them in well, and they should do fine.
