The earliest cropping, bushy dwarf broad bean, ideal for autumn or spring sowing in the smaller garden or exposed areas where taller varieties may be blown over. We recommend that the tips of plants are pinched out when the first pods have set. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Dwarf variety.
Rob says: “A short broad bean, which can be grown amongst flowers or borders. It doesn’t need vast space like some others. The pods give 5-6 beans which are really tasty and freeze well. Or alternatively make them into a broad bean hummus, it’s gorgeous!”
For early crops sow late October-November or in January, in a warm sheltered position. Sowings for summer cropping should be made February-March. Sow in double rows 23cm (9") apart, 5cm (2") deep and 23cm (9") apart allowing 90cm (3') between each pair of rows - 60cm (2') for The Sutton. Pinch out the plant tops when in full flower to obtain better filled pods and to avoid infestation with black fly. Double row 6m (20').
