Talkback: Growing climbing beans video project

This is my problem, too.  The beans are growing fast, almost to the top of the canes. Should the tips be pinched out?   Please do tell.

Facing facts I guess that the forsythia, which was there and suddenly died, can't be replaced with something as cheerful in Spring.  I must say that both mahonia and japonica do grow to good heights and could be the answer.

Thank you for your ideas.  Fatsia and mahonia sound right, although I had in mind a kind of high hedge.  Sunshine reaches the area early morning and late afternoon, with a high fence and oak tree providing the shade.   Fast growing would be nice!

Would photinia thrive in a shady area?  A gap of about 6ft at the side of the house needs to be filled with something interesting.  Suggestions please.

Is it too late to take cuttings from geraniums?
