Sow broad beans for May har­vests

Gardeners' World - - What To Do Now -

If you sow some broad beans now, they’ll be ready to eat in May, a few weeks ahead of those that are sown next Fe­bru­ary or March. The seeds will ger­mi­nate and the small plants will over­win­ter in all but the harsh­est win­ter con­di­tions. Sow seeds 15cm apart in wide, 5cm-deep drills. Wa­ter them after sow­ing, then put sup­ports in place for next spring.

Use a trowel to mea­sure the spac­ing be­tween seeds
