Broad Bean Early Long Pod are an excellent green-seeded variety, producing very long pods and giving high yields of well flavoured beans.
Broad beans grow well in most soils and like all legumes are a fantastic soil improver.
Prepare double rows 30cm apart, 5cm deep, sowing seeds 25cm apart. Pinch out the top of the plants when pods are 7-10cm long, this will encourage an earlier crop of well filled pods.
Broad Beans like a rich, well dug soil but most soils will give a satisfactory crop. If possible feed the soil before sowing with a general fertiliser. Pick regularly to ensure a continuous supply. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
Will require support by way of staking or trellis to assist the plant holding up the weight of the harvest.
Plant these bean seeds in autumn and early Winter. In warmer climates, plant in winter for a spring harvest.
Flower drop is common in early Spring due to low temperatures. Pod-setting improves with warmer weather and increased bee activity.
