Why not just use a vining variety and just train them to a wire "tree"?

i have given that a thought. i'd rather fine a kind that bushes to make it easier. i may end up with vining bean, but i would rather not.

The seed packet should say right on front "Bush Bean" or just "Bush". I too prefer the bush to the vine any day. I can't remember what the names of the ones I grew last time, but those key words are what I look for (along with disease resistant).

Good luck!

Have had excellent luck with Venture varity of green beans - available from Twilley Seeds and Parker. That variety keeps bearing all season. Expensive but well worth the money.
