pot height

Going to plant pole beans in pots on my porch this year.
Not sure whether I'll use one big pot or several smaller one. Knowing what would be the minimum pot height might help me make a decision. Thanks in advance.

RE: pot height

For beans, tomatoes, and squash I use five gallon buckets, or the big nursery containers (~10 gal), of well aerated soilless mix. They seem to love it on my balcony, and they're very cheap, durable, and last forever.
