    Depends on where you are?

    Assuming the seeds come soon, you should be OK.  Sown inside they should germinate in a few days, and then plant out when they have two true leaves. Bury up to the seed leaves.

    Will you need to construct a climbing frame for your variety ?

    This is the one I am growing.

    Yep I'll just use 3 bamboo sticks tied together at the top to give them space to grow up.
