 Broad Bean Growing Tips

Broad beans are the first legumes to be harvested, and with a succession of sowings you can have broad beans available right from June into September.

  • Sow Robin Hood direct into the ground or into containers, about 5cm deep and 15cm apart.
  • Once through feed regularly.
  • Broad beans can be attacked by aphids. One way to reduce the damage is to pinch out the top 7.5cm of the plants when the first pods start are seen. Alternatively you can spray with SB Plant Invigorator.
  • When picking pods to shell wait until the beans can be seen through the pod. Do not leave them too long as once the scar on the bean turns black, the beans start becoming tougher.
