When using corn stalks to support pole beans, how important is it that the beans are especially well adapted to that way of growing. There is Genuine Cornfield and other such varieties which are adapted to cornfield growing, but how well will other pole bean varieties work?
I'm starting to think seriously about doing a three sisters garden next year. It would be nice if I could grow my usual assortment of pole bean varieties without worrying over whether they were suited to that purpose. But I don't know if that's a good idea.
I expect to plant the corn hills on about 4 foot centers, so there should be adequate light penetration. Are there other concerns I should know about regarding beans in a three sisters configuration?
I'm gathering corn information on the Vegetable Growing forum. There's no need to go into the corn aspect here, unless you want to.
