• Broad Bean Bonanza

    freshly picked broad beans
    I sowed the Del Monica broad beans (from Thompson & Morgan) in February, planted them out in March and we are now enjoying a bumper harvest. This is one of the crops that has responded really well to the use of GroChar – the plants are 1.25m tall and are covered in large pods. From now on this is the broad bean I will grow – no more worrying about plants overwintering when you can get a crop like this from a February sowing.
