Broad Bean Seeds - Meteor Vroma

  • Catalogue Code 1030-3112
  • Pack Contents: 60x Broad Bean Seeds
  • Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Great for overwintering for earlier harvests
  • Extra long pods

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.
