The hardiest broad bean there is, for sowing any time from autumn until spring. It's highly prolific and easy to grow, and yet remains one of the most delicious in terms of flavour and texture.
In the spring, before the beans crop, inter-sow your lines of broad beans with summer savory – the delicious herb which tastes like thyme. This helps protect against black bean aphid and a sprig or two in their boiling water gives the beans delicious flavour.
If you have ordered these seeds, we have had unforeseen delays and they will now be available late March. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
Will need staking, watering and having the tips pinched out once pods start to form.
