When to sow
When to Sow Masterpiece Broad Bean Seeds
February to April. Germination takes 7-14 days
Where to Sow
Early sowings of broad beans can be made in pots in the greenhouse or under cloches in the growing site. Later sowings direct can be made direct into the growing site at 5cm (2") deep, in 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 (24") 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 (3") to discourage blackfly.
For best flavour and texture, pick the beans when the pods are 15-20cm (6-8"), but before the scar (the mark where attached to the pod) has discoloured.
