A compact, sturdy variety that produces a heavy crop of nutty-flavoured beans. Steamed Broad Beans make an excellent addition to many hot dishes. Young pods can be sliced, cooked and eaten as a green vegetable.
Sow direct where they are to grow in cultivated, well drained soil. Make a trench 4cm deep and 15cm wide. Sow seeds at 15cm intervals along each side of trench. Cover with soil and water well Do not water again until seedlings emerge
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. For best results apply Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite. If low temperatures are experienced in early spring, some bud drop may occur. This is natural and new flowers will quickly follow. Plants may need some support as they can reach 1 metre in height. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem
Great companion plant for cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, potatoes & spinach. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
