Horizontal trellis / support for bush beans and peas

Post  sanderson on 4/14/2017, 3:29 am

With permission, I am posting an idea for horizontal support for bush beans and peas.  SFG Laurie Bryan Wardle‎.  The trellis is actually home made instead of store bought, but it is done so nicely you can't tell.

i was trying to think of something to support them. Most of my bush beans didn't get tall enough for that but it's a great idea. I wound up using little bamboo BBQ skewers and tying each plant to one. Those bush beans are a lazy bunch.

My late father bought 4x8 foot grid sheets of welded rebar from a construction supply company. He rolled them up then secured them with baling wire then stood them over his bean, pepper, tomato plants and others. He used them for decades.

I like to make an inverted "U" of electrical conduit then hang 10x15 foot nylon webs from them. I find the webs here in Atlanta at Home Depot and Lowes for about US $10.
