|Autumn Sown Broad Beans - St Ives Allotment|
I always sow some Broad Beans in Autumn.
It was good to see the seedlings coming through this week - from seeds sown in October.
If sowing in Autumn its important to use a suitable variety - some are only good for sowing in Spring.
I've sown Aquadulce Claudia for the last few seasons - always reliable for germinating in Autumn and producing good crops in late Spring.
