When to Sow Wikiem Manita Broad Bean Seeds

February to April. Seedlings begin to sprout in 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 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.

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 under cloches for a really early Spring crop.
