Vegetables

Broad Beans 'Evergreen'

Vicia faba

This tender and succulent, green seeded variety produces small, mild flavoured beans that are suitable for fresh use or freezing. Excellent crop for spring harvest.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Directly into well drained soil previously prepared with Yates Thrive All Purpose Fertiliser. For extended harvest, sow every 5-6 weeks during season. Working in Yates Hauraki Peat before sowing will improve drainage.

Care

Plants will need support – stretch lengths of twine down each side of row and attach to 1 metre stakes at 20cm intervals. Control Rust and Chocolate Spot with Yates Bravo. Early plantings may suffer flower-drop, this will decrease as temperatures warm. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
