First time growing pole beans
Hey everybody, first time poster and gardener - wanted to grow some beans, as they are delicious, and pole beans, as they are constant producers. But I have a few questions -
I am curious to know if any type of pole would work for my beans - I have a few 7 foot tall metal poles from a gazeebo my parents broke down, and wanted to know if that would work - or would it be too slick for them to climb?
Also, I think I have read to maybe plant 3 of them around the base of each pole. As I have a smaller garden, I'm only going to have room for about 3 poles, 3 feet apart - how far from the pole should I plant the beans? And how far from each other? Please forgive my ignorance - any help at all will be useful!
