A compact, sturdy variety that produces a heavy crop of delicate nutty-flavoured beans. Blanched broad beans make an amazing hearty addition to hot dishes - delightful in omelettes, risotto, or tossed with baby potatoes. Young pods can be sliced, steamed and eaten as a green vegetable. A great match with bacon, or fresh mint.
Sow direct where they are to grow in cultivated, well drained soil. Make a trench 4cm deep and 15cm wide. Sow seeds at 15cm intervals along each side of trench. Cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix and water well. Do not water again until seedlings emerge.
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. For best results prepare soil by digging in Yates Thrive Natural Garden Lime and Yates Thrive Natural Sulphate of Potash. If low temperatures are experienced in early Spring, some bud drop may occur. This is natural and new flowers will quickly follow. Plants may need some support as they can reach 1m in height. Protect from snails and slugs.
Great companion plant for cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, potatoes & spinach. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
