How to plant and support runner bean plants. Pea and bean plants are climbing plants and need supports as they grow, here Andrew demonstrates how to build a wigwam support structure using bamboo canes.

They grow well in partial shade. Supports of 2.2metres should be put in place before transplanting your seedlings.
