Cultivation Advice Broad Bean Grano Violetto Winter Hardy

  • Sow from early autumn to late winter in an open sunny site. Preferably on ground which has been manured for a previous crop.
  • Sow in double rows 7cm (2in.) deep, 23cm (9in.) apart in the row. Space the double rows 23cm (9in.) apart and leave a distance of 40-60cm (18-24in.) before the next set of double rows.
  • Keep free of weeds.
  • Pinch out the tops of the plants as soon as four clusters of bloom are showing.
  • Harvest the beans when the pods are well fat and the seed still soft. (This product is sold by packet weight – exact seed counts will vary depending on seed size per batch – seed counts above are an approximation only)
