Meanwhile, peas and other legumes such as beans are good companion plants for many other vegetables because they increase the availability of nitrogen in the soil.

Can you plant cucumbers and pole beans together?

Some of the best plants to grow near cucumbers are marigolds and nasturtiums, beans and corn, peas, tomatoes and radishes.

You can use the same trellis to grow long-vined peas like ‘Sugar Snap’ with scarlet runner beans or a vigorous pole bean like ‘Kentucky Wonder’. In spring, plant the peas on the north or east side of an upright or A-frame trellis, and then plant pole beans on the opposite side a month or so later, after the peas are at least 8 inches tall.
