Notes: Pole beans take longer to reach maturity than bush beans, but they have a longer production period.

Growing: Pole beans require a trellis, netting, or a pole to accommodate their vining habit.

Growing in Containers: May be grown in raised beds or very large planters, such as barrels. Provide a trellis or netting.

Garden Companions: Companions to beans: Beets, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, corn, eggplant, potato, radishes, kale, lettuce, peas, potatoes, swiss chard, and strawberry.
Plants to Avoid:  All members of the allium family (onions, leeks, garlic, scallions) and Kohlrabi inhibit growth in beans. Sunflowers will compete for light.

Pest/Disease Issues: Aphids can be washed off plants with a hard stream of water. 

Harvesting: Harvest early and often to increase yields. Remove oversized beans to maintain pod production. 

Suitability for Indoors: Not well suited for indoors.
