Some varieties need to climb. If you don’t have room for rows of canes, you can also make wigwams. Use 1.8m (6ft) tall canes and use four to eight canes per wigwam (depending on number of plants), spacing each cane 15cm (6in) at the ground. Tie the tops of the cans together. Wigwams are a good method for container growing too

No matter which method you choose, plant one bean plant at the base of each cane, and loosely tie the shoots to the cane

Cover the plants with fleece or newspaper if there is any rist of frost

Water well during periods of prolonged dry weather. Place a mulch of well-rotted manure or mushroom compost around the plants in July to help conserve soil moisture
