Planting Advice

Prepare double rows 30cm (12”) apart, 5cm (2”) deep, sowing seeds 25cm (10”) apart. If more than one double row is to be planted allow 60cm (24”) between them. Pinch out the top of the plants when pods are 7-10cm (3-4”) long. This will encourage an earlier crop of well filled pods and help to deter blackfly.

Broad Beans like a rich, well dug soil but most soils will give a satisfactory crop. If possible feed the soil before sowing with a general fertiliser. Pick regularly to ensure a continuous supply. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days. Will require support by way of staking or trellis to assist the plant holding up the weight of the harvest.

Watering needs

Keep soil moist.
