Answer: The nice thing about pole beans is that they have a long bearing season, unlike bush beans which tend to produce their crop in a short burst. Bamboo is a relatively inexpensive means of support. Tie four or five canes together with twine to make a teepee, and plant the beans around the base. Pole beans grow VERY tall, so tomato cages would be outrun in no time. Get long bamboo canes (7' or more) from your garden center, or contact Gardener's Supply Company (email@example.com or 1-800-863-1700) for more information.
