It also makes a beautiful element to our garden.

I love vertical gardening for adding architecture and height to gardens. When you have kids, vertical structures are also fun for hiding or running through tunnels. You can create a magical children’s garden in many ways, one of them being a kids garden fort.

I first saw the inspiration for  a kids bean house in this wonderful children’s gardening book called ‘Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots’

I knew I wanted to build a fun bean playhouse in our garden!

Our kids garden playhouse was handmade using re-purposed wooden branches. You can see the step by step process in this blog post.

We planted scarlet runner beans as the climbing bean for this playhouse

We harvest these dry soup beans later in the season, the kids always enjoy shelling them! You can plant any pole beans up your playhouse, or even small pumpkin like jack be little so long as you have a strong structure. See my list of great plants for kids to grow and what are the best vertical growing plants.

I planted chamomile, strawberries, iceland poppies and borage around the teepee
