Too early to comment on the yield and quality of beans that the plants will hopefully produce but a generous amount of seed was provided, germination rate was almost 100% and the plants look very healthy so far.
With easy-to-handle large seeds, robust nature and ability to grow in the ground or containers, broad beans make a lovely crop of vegetables to try if you’re growing your own crops for the first time.
