Growing Calendar for Broad Bean Seeds - Meteor Vroma
If you would like us to email you when this product comes back into stock, please login or register first
Broad Bean Meteor Vroma seeds produce long, well-filled pods with tender Broad Beans of good flavour. It is also a good early-cropping variety, ready with big pods to harvest as early as May, overwintering well from an autumn sowing though its main sowing season is spring.
Broad Beans prefer a sunny position with shelter from strong winds and a rich, moisture retentive, well-drained soil. We recommend that you prepare the planting site in advance (a few weeks before sowing) by digging over and incorporating good compost, leaf mould or Organic Extra.
Sow in a staggered double row to optimise your space; this packet of seeds provide you with enough seed to sow a 4.5m (15ft) double row.
Early crops of very large beans.
Sow Indoors: February-March, singly in clean pots or modules of compost 2in (5cm) deep. Water well.
Sow Outdoors: March-April, direct into the required harvest position, 2in (5cm) deep, 8in (20cm) apart in double rows 8in (20cm) apart. Leave 18in (46cm) between each double row. Keep soil moist at all times.
