Vegetables

Broad Beans 'Exhibition Long Pod'

Vicia faba

Strong, sturdy plants that carry a heavy crop of very long pods sometimes up to 30cm long. An excellent green vegetable for spring harvest.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Directly into well drained soil previously prepared with Yates Thrive All Purpose Fertiliser. Working in Yates Hauraki Peat before sowing will improve drainage. For extended harvest, sow every 5-6 weeks during season.

Care

Plants will need support – stretch lengths of twine down each side of row and attach to 1 metre stakes at 20cm intervals. Protect your seedlings from slugs and snails with Yates Blitzem. Control Rust and Chocolate Spot with Yates Bravo. Early plantings may suffer flower-drop, this will decrease as temperatures warm.
