Why not just use a vining variety and just train them to a wire "tree"?

RE: what type of beans?

i have given that a thought. i'd rather fine a kind that bushes to make it easier. i may end up with vining bean, but i would rather not.

RE: what type of beans?

The seed packet should say right on front "Bush Bean" or just "Bush". I too prefer the bush to the vine any day. I can't remember what the names of the ones I grew last time, but those key words are what I look for (along with disease resistant).

Good luck!

RE: what type of beans?

i got on ebay and ordered some. i can't wait to get them in and in the rockwool. i'll have 6 types of tomatos, 2 types of peppers, leaflet lettuce, miniture head lettuce, herbs, and carots. potatoes if i had a huge pot to put 4 plants in.

Have had excellent luck with Venture varity of green beans - available from Twilley Seeds and Parker. That variety keeps bearing all season. Expensive but well worth the money.
