Sow direct into soil prepared by digging and raking at a depth of 50mm (2"), spacing the seeds 20cm (8") apart. Best sown alternately in double rows allowing 23cm (9") between the lines forming each row. Allow 60-90cm (24-36") between further rows. Germination 7-21 days. Can also be sown in pots or trays of compost on a windowsill or in a greenhouse for eventual planting outside. Grows best in a sheltered site, but not shaded, in well drained soil. Pinching out tips helps to prevent attacks of blackfly. Water well during dry weather to aid flower setting and bean formation. Sowing to Cropping: 15 weeks.

It is advisable to pinch out tips of plants when first pods have set to deter blackfly. HEALTH BENEFITS: A source of vitamins A, C and E, plus protein and fibre. COOKING HINTS: Cook pinched-out tips as a tasty alternative to spinach.

These grew fantastically this year, we've had difficulty growing broad beans, but these were no problem. Just keep on top of the black fly by regularly spraying with soapy water (ecover washing up liquid as it's safer to environment) and rubbing off flies.
