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.
