Central Coast NSW. Broad Beans. I have had a pretty good strike rate with my Broad Beans, as they grew they were toppling over. I used Bamboo Stakes to hold them up. They are now about 3 ft tall at the end of my stakes and still growing vigourisly. I really dont want to use Tomato Stakes, What shall I do. Thanks in Advance

Sounds like you have a choice - use tomato stakes or just let them fall over.

Yes, I think you are right anyhow, I have plenty of Tomato Stakes, will just get em out and go for it. Thanks for the Reply. Cheers. Pete.
