I plan to do a science project on how worms affect bean plants. The plant I chose to use for the project is the scarlet runner. Here's my problem; According to some websites and books, they only grow in spring. Is that true? My project is due in January, and I should start it around the end of November and the begining of December. This could be a major problem for my project! I need a backup plan... I may try to use the type of bean I get from the store, but I don't remember what type that is, and so I can't really research it. I need answers... fast! The rough draft of my research is due on 10/13.
