Re: Has-beans? support bush beans?

Hi James,

It would be easier to respond to your questions if you gave some more
details about your operation- like what type of soil, variety of beans you
planted, what you used for fertilization, what grew there last year etc....
Otherwise we are all guessing?

Having said that, under some conditions, very vigorous bush beans do
benefit from support. Aboriginal peoples in my gardening zone (500mi NW of
Minneapolis)  wove green willow branches horizontally in a lattice shape to
give mild support to bush beans.

I'm having a problem with bush and pole beans - mostly the pole beans. BTW,
are bush beans supposed to be supported? My seedsman, JL Hudson, makes no
mention of such support. He does recommend erecting a triod of 6-foot poles
over the pole beans, but mine have refused to climb; or they have attempted
to climb and then slipped off to lie, peaked and ragged, near the bottom.
Is this simply a matter of tying them to the poles? Or are poles not the
way to go?
Thank you!
