When to Sow The Sutton Broad Bean Seeds

October to November or February to April. Germinates in around 7-14 days.

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 45cm (18") apart.

What to do next

Glasshouse seedlings should be transplanted to the growing site in March, 10cm (4") apart in rows 45cm (18in) 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.

Maturity

June to August

Handy Tip

One of the few varieties that can also be sown in the Autumn. Try a sowing in late October or November for a really early Spring crop.
