Broad Bean Evergreen

Botanical Name: Vicia faba

Succulent green seeds which retain colour. Suitable for eating fresh or deep freezing. Flower drop is a common problem in early Spring due to low temperatures. Pod-setting improves with warmer weather and increased bee activity.

How To Grow Prepare double rows 30cm (1’) apart, 5cm (2”) deep, sowing seeds 25cm (10”) apart. If more than one double row is to be planted allow 60cm (2’) 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 add a general fertiliser to the soil before sowing. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
Harvest 18-20
Sow Spring, Autumn, Winter
Soil Type well drained
