I tried peat pots once and did not like them...if you are using peat pellets I guess you can't separate the roots so would have to pinch out all but one. I grow several things from seed and make wooden flats to do so. When I transplant from these I am able to gently separate the roots and all survive. I think we are 'sold' a lot of unncessary planting equipment. Everyone used to grow in flats and then transplant to a pot or into the garden. I make the flats out of one by four pine boards to fit whatever size tray I can find to set underneath to water from. The bottom is one quarter inch hardware cloth or screen and lined with plain paper.
One of the joys of seed saving is almost perfect germination, so there is no need to plant two or three to a pot. Later when the plants are larger I do select for hardiness and type, etc.
I would plant green beans right in the garden at the proper distance and not try to transplant at all.
Dont hesitate to ask any question here!
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
