This Pea and Bean Duo Pack contains the best peas and beans for autumn sowing. The advantages of autumn sowing is that your plants begin to grow earlier, overwintering and bursting into growth again in spring, meaning that you get an earlier crop, giving you the option to sow a second crop for a prolonged harvest. This Pea and Bean Duo Pack includes Broad Bean ‘Aquadulce Claudia’ and Pea ‘Douce Provence’.
Broad Bean ‘Aquadulce Claudia’ is best sown in October or November to allow them to overwinter into hardy young plants, strong enough to withstand the winter frosts. Then, when the warmer spring weather arrives, they quickly put on growth and soon produce delicious broad beans. It establishes itself quickly, is very hardy and produces very early crops. ‘Aquadulce Claudia' produces very long glossy pods up to 9in, with tender light coloured beans. An RHS AGM variety.
Pea ‘Douce de Provence’ is a round-seeded pea (as opposed to its wrinkled-seeded cousins) which means you can sow it from late September to early November. This will ensure the young plants establish themselves before the winter sets in. Once spring arrives they'll continue to develop, well ahead of your spring sown peas. ‘Douce Provence’ is a very sweet and succulent variety and one of the most versatile.
Pea and Bean Duo Seed Pack consists of:
- 1 Full-Size Packet of ‘Aquadulce Claudia’ Broad Bean Seeds
- 1 Full-Size Packet of ‘Douce de Provence’ Pea Seeds
