WHEN TO SOW 

February to April

WHERE TO SOW 

February sowings in pots or root trainers in the greenhouse or under cloches in the growing site. Later sowings draw out seed drills direct into the sowing site 5cm (2in) deep in rows, spacing the seeds 10-15cm (4-6in) apart, and spacing the rows 60cm (24") apart. 

WHAT TO DO NEXT 

Glasshouse seedlings should be transplanted to the growing site in March, 10cm (4") apart in rows 60cm (24in) apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 10cm (4") apart, the thinning's can be transplanted to make extra rows. When the first beans form, remove the top 6cm (2 1/2in) to help discourage black fly. Harvest once pods become filled with succulent tasty young beans. 

HARVEST 

July & August 

HANDY TIP 

Broad beans do not need huge amounts of water until they flower, then if the weather is dry water regularly.
