Pole Beans

Anonymous added on July 20, 2015 | Answered

Do pole beans bush out and produce more beans if they are pinched off after they reach higher than my 8 ft. poles? Or should I just let the tops hang down?

Pinching is normally done on much younger and smaller plants to encourage bushing out. It should not hurt the plant either way, however, so if you would like to pinch them back, go ahead.
