Don’t have a lot of space for growing climbing beans? Why not use your outside wall space with this simple to make bean frame? Joyce Russell guides you through it

See our video on growing beans:

Growing climbing beans is easy enough in a large garden. You need enough room for a tripod type structure; or use a long A frame made from poles if you want to grow lots.There are other support options of course, but few of these are designed to suit a small garden or back yard. If you want to grow beans up a wall, then you might consider trellis or fixed wire frames – but both of these can fit too closely for beans, which like to wrap all the way around supports. So what do you do to get the most out of a small back yard? Well, one answer is to make your own frame, where you are in control of how closely it fits against a wall. You may as well enjoy something attractive too, so if you like making your own garden aids then this pretty frame is perfect for you.
