  • Catalogue Code 1030-3112
  • Pack Contents: 60x Broad Bean Seeds

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.

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.
