I have put in 7 pairs of canes. The task was easier than usual this year, because I was able to stand on the wide timbers, allowing me to put in the horizontal top cane without too much stretching!

The canes at the ends of the rows will each support two French Bean plants, which are smaller than the Runners. I have some of "Kew Blue", which is a purple-podded variety:
