Planting+
Broad beans need no prior treatment although steeping them overnight in lukewarm water will encourage germination.
Care+
Give extra water in dry periods only. Broad beans appreciate fertiliser right through the season. Keep the bed free of weeds to encourage your broad beans to grow.
Specifics+
Broad beans are tastiest when freshly picked but they do freeze very well – still in the pod too! Left too long on the vines, broad beans can grow somewhat bitter so do harvest as soon as possible when ready. Broad beans can be kept for several days in the refrigerator. Broad beans themselves can be hulled for the insides of each bean which is also very tasty! Yield will then be slightly less and there is more work involved.
