Sow Spring or Autumn.
If you are after something special, Red Epicure is the broad bean to choose!
The chestnut crimson beans retain their striking colour if lightly steamed rather than boiled.
From February to May, seeds can also be sown individually 2.5cm (1in) deep in 8cm (3in) pots of seed compost. After sowing, place pots in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist but not saturated. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions before setting them out from April onwards to their cropping positions a the recommended spacings. This often gives an earlier crop than outdoor sowings.
Sow individual seeds 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm (4in) apart. Broad beans are usually sown in double rows about 25cm (10in) apart. Allow 60cm (24in) between each set of double rows.
June - July
