Give the climbing tendrils a helping hand by winding them around canes or string, especially early on. Use string to bind the plant in if the tendrils do not cling, which they will generally do. Wind can be a factor in them not fastening well. Extra water should only be given in periods of drought. Keep the bed free of weeds – the beans will then grow well.
