Growing Calendar for Broad Bean Seeds - Meteor Vroma
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Broad Beans prefer a sunny position with shelter from strong winds and a rich, moisture retentive, well-drained soil. Prepare the planting site in advance by digging over and incorporating good compost, leaf mould or Organic Extra.
They are traditionally grown in a staggered double row for support, because this is the best way to grow them we provide you with enough seed to sow a 15ft/4.5m 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.
Plant Out: Indoor raised crops in April 8in (20cm) apart in double rows 8in (20cm) apart. Leave 18in (46cm) between each double row.
Run strings both sides along the double row at 12in (30cm) and 24in (60cm) from the ground, supporting stems as they grow. Pick young for best flavour.

Old favourite, not a huge cropper but so tasty and plants trouble free.
These beans are my standard crop each year. They crop heavily and freeze well. Always start them in pots in the cold greenhouse beginning of. February..
Sowed 24 in a tray in a propagator. About 22 germinated and have since been planted out. (I hope not too early!)
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.
