But don't be surprised if you still get a pole plant or two, since the flowers on the pole may have crossed again with the flowers on the bushes. Unlikely, unless your bees are very active... but a possibility.
always true out in the garden when you have no absolute control of what is planted in neighbors gardens and have flying pollinators going around, perhaps even sneaking in through gaps in netting or even random mutations at times.
luckily though most beans self-fertilize and have been selected and bred to be pretty stable. repeated grow outs and selecting true to type beans can cover a lot of ground.
how many beans do you think you've cleaned up over the years?
