Broad Beans


A must grow, these small tender beans grown yourself picked and eaten fresh from the plant just don’t compare to shop bought ones.

They are also one fo the first vegtables to harvest in spring, making them a good choice for small plots as they can soon be repalced with something elses. They can, if space is limited, also be grown in pots.
