Sharing trellis space -- beans and cucumbers?

wonderpets(7 TN)May 5, 2011

Can pole beans and cucumbers share space on the same trellis without one crop crowding out the other one? I'm trying to find some where to plant the beans where they won't end up all interwoven with my tomoatoes/growing on my cages.

The cukes that are there currently are General Lee and Burpee Bush Champion. The trellis is CRW 4' acroos and approx 6' tall.

Should work fine as the beans will be pretty much done producing by the time the cukes are beginning to bear. The 'bush cukes won't need a trellis
