Broad bean Aquadulce
Description


The standard variety for overwintering and for Spring sowing. Very good cold tolerance, semi compact plants with high yields of pods containing 6-7 beans per pod. Grows to approximately 90cm in height. A very early maturing variety. For longer crop production sow some in the Autumn and some in the Late Spring.
Cultivation

Sow February to March For later cropping or preferably sow from October to Jan for earlier harvests
Harvest from May to October 
Plant spacing 20cm in double rows with 60 cm between each double row.
Once the plants have set 4 sets of flowers the tops can be pinched out to help prevent infestation by blackfly although this is not always necessary.
The old plants can also be ploughed in as a green manure. 
 Broad Beans do attract black fly - you could try planting Garlic or perhaps Tanacetum cinerariifolium between or next to the rows (both on sale in our shop) to help prevent the infestation. - It worked for me !!
