How to Build an Overhanging Runner Bean Frame

Want to grow climbing beans but have minimal space?

Maddy and Tim Harland, founders of Permaculture Magazine, show you how to build an overhanging runner bean frame from upcycled materials. This allows the beans to hang from the frame for easy picking (no more searching through the dense leaves) and provides shade for spinach and salad to be grown underneath in the height of summer.

See how stacking with permaculture can work in the annual vegetable garden.
