Cultivation Advice BROAD BEAN WITKIEM  

  • Sow from early Feb onwards 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. The double rows should be spaced 23cm (9in.) apart and a distance of 40-60cm (18-24in.) should be left 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.
