pinch the top of the plant off, that's where they're usually feeding  ;)

Yes you will. The stems get heavy, as the beans in the pods mature, and they can break.

I've merged your topics as they are asking advice on the same plants. :)

You can put the canes in place when the plants are still quite small. If you don't secure them too tightly you can adjust the fastenings as the plants grow taller.

For what it's worth, in my experience, The Sutton is stouter than other broad beans, and doesn't need staking.

I staked mine last week after one snapped off in the wind.
