Broad Bean Red Epicure Seeds

  • Chestnut colour beans
  • Sow Feb-May/Oct-Nov
  • Flowers: Jun-Jul

Sowing Indoors

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.

Sowing Outdoors

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.
