Blowin i went back and re'read that thread..thanks for the advice. Im going to have peas only along the wall this year..just to see how it goes. i understand it may cut my crop by half but i think there will be plenty considering the row length...should be 30 plants or so. i'll have to learn the hard way..im quite a stubborn..i do have a seperate plot for dwarf runner beans..which i will replace with stakes/bamboo canes for my main crop..thats the plan anyway! thanks again for the advice..always helpful.

Nice job! They will certainly fly up that no bother. I grew drarf varieties of french bean and i also grew the oregan mangetout. neither grow much higher than 3 foot. i might skip the french bean this year but I'm defo going for the oregans again...so tasty. my 3 yr old was milling into them on the plot.

Some of my oregans from last year...

careful you dont grow/buy too many, i always feel guilty throwing un-eaten stuff that I grew away.

forgot to mention, the mangetout pic was taken in early september. i sowed a 2nd batch of mangetout in late july and got a massive crop from them.

Wigwams looks grand to me. Looks like plenty of shelter there so they should be fine. I imagine when the plants are growing up the canes that they will weight the canes down pretty evenally and help support themselves that way.

You growing the beans up the canes?

I picked it up in Mr.Middletons on mary st. €99. its wuite big. 2ft long x 1.5ft wide..
