Climbing french beans
Is there a way of stopping them climbing any taller? Mine have gone completely crazy and already I can't reach the tops without climbing up the step ladder. If they take off up the nearby monkey puzzle tree all will be lost (at least the beans up there will be - it has cruelly sharp spines). I pinched out the growing tips when they got to the top of the canes but the side shoots have now got up, up and away
Another question, has anybody tried growing compact courgette plants? Do they crop as well as ordinary ones?
