    I have some Ferrari Dwarf Bean seedlings on my kitchen windowsill at present.
    I'll plant some out in the garden but wondering if I could keep one or two indoors? My garden is really bad for snails and they usually get my beans before I do!

    If I pinch the top off, will it bush out or just stop growing, therefore not produce beans?

    Thanks

    Personally I don't think that they will do very well indoors.
    They will be a bit leggy and any flowers will probably not get pollinated.

      Ahh good point re pollination!
      Thank you.
      I'll put them outdoors.
