- Extremely hardy.
- The ultimate in fine seeded broad beans, with very small, almost round, tender, sweet beans. Well filled pods sit horizontally on the plants for easier picking and contain approx. 5 beans each. 100cm(40in).
- White seeded variety - Autumn & Spring sowing.
- Broad Beans are easy to grow producing large succulent beans, packed with flavour and vitamins. Grow in well dug, fertilised soil.
- A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
- Recommended by Will Livingstone (River Cottage head gardener) in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition):“Can be sown in October for overwintering, avoiding the first wave of blackfly and again in spring to follow the winter crop. Reliable, consistently high yielding and with a solid germination rate.”
- Also recommended by Anne Swithinbank.
Sow & Grow: Outdoors October-February, where they are to crop, 5cm (2") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. To make the best use of space, sow seeds 23cm (9") apart, in a wide row in a zigzag pattern, leaving a space of 60cm (2') between each row. Seedlings usually appear in 14-24 days. Do not sow in very cold weather or when soil is waterlogged. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: June-August.
