Step 4: Plant the Seeds

Drop the bean seeds in these trenches, no closer than 3 inches apart. Cover with dirt, then water and wait.
Do you think using tomato cages would help green/string beans grow the way yours grow? I have only a few plants and they are already producing fruit, but they aren't very high. Any tips?
It depends what type of beans you have. There are two major types, bush beans and pole beans. Bush beans will not climb and will stay about a foot tall while pole beans will climb up just about anything. Since your plants are already producing, it sounds like you have a type of bush bean.
oops, forgot to mntion that I am already using the tomato cages and attempting to 'help' them along by placing the vines/stalks on to upper parts of the cage.
