growing green beans and cucumbers vertically.....SFG...
I plan to do one 4' x 4' box for square foot gardening. Each box is divided up into 16 squares, and each of these squares is 1' x 1'.
I know that in both books that advocate square foot gardening, the author who wrote them recommends growing
crops that sprawl and/or vine with their growth patterns
vertically. They recommend this to save space, which is the whole concept and philosophy behind square foot gardening.....grow more in less space.
I plan to grow compact varieties of green beans and cucumbers.
The cucumber I have is called space master. Since I plan to grow bush varieties of cucumbers and green beans would
it still be necessary to have them grow vertically?
How many bush green bean plants could I plant in one 1' x 1' square? By this I mean how many could I plant in each 1'x1' square without overcrowding them? I realize that
if you overcrowd plants it stresses the plant out, and makes them more vulnerable disease; on top of that they're more liable to die as well.
