We have constructed our runner bean framework this weekend, made from our own wood. We are planting 8 plants, so there are 4 bean poles on each side, plus the extra supporting pole on top and at each end. The poles are stuck securely into the ground and tied together using twine.
Welcome to The Modern Gardener blogWe love gardens, and we love modern architecture and design. This blog is a loose collection of experiences and observations as we explore those passions. Occasionally we give tips and advice based on our own experience - please use these only in addition to advice from books and professionals. And do always comment back with your own experience as it helps us and other readers!
