WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL FOR POLE BEANS TO CLIMB AND CLING TOO? THE PAST FEW YEARS I HAVE BEEN USING BAILLING TWINE TOO TRELLISS MY BEAN CROP. IT IS STRONG AND SUPPORTS THE WEIGHT OF THE VINES WELL. HOWEVER IT IS NOT VERY EASY TO TIE AND WORK WITH. IS THERE A MORE SUITABLE MATERIAL THAT I'M NOT AWARE OF?

Some gardeners use heavy wire instead of twine, some use the premade string trellis netting, others use several poles lashed together teepee style, still others have used makeshift supports such as a large mesh "cattle panel" attached to sturdy posts. It's really a matter of personal preference and what is available.
