|Autumn Sown Broad Beans - Aquadulce Claudia|
Between now and the end of October is a good time to sow some Broad Bean seeds.
This will get the plants established before Winter sets in - hopefully leading to an early crop next Spring.
You need to use a specific Autumn sowing (not Spring) variety such as Aquadulce Claudia.
Last season my seeds were robbed out by mice - see my earlier post:
Broad Bean Robbery
So I'll get these growing on well, safe in a corner of my back garden.
Its great to be preparing for next Spring already, with the final Summer crops coming in and my allotment starting to look a bit empty.
