When to sow
When to Sow Karmazyn Broad Bean Seeds
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 growing 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 blackfly. Harvest once pods become filled with succulent tasty young beans.
July and August
Broad Beans do not need huge amounts of water until they flower, then when the weather is dry water regularly.
