How do pole beans climb?
Really basic question from a novice. Never grown beans before, so I really dont know much.
I planted "Fench climbing pole beans" around a bamboo teepee. They seem to be doing great. Problem is they are about 2 feet high and not clinging to the bamboo poles in any way. they are just kind of flopping over. Are these bush beans and I got sent the wrong thing?
How do beans climb? Do they send out tendril things like cucumbers? Do I have to train them? If so, how?
I'm sure this is a dull question for most of you guys, but thanks for any info.
