Thompson & Morgan Broad Bean Green Windsor 50 Seed

£1.99

Broad Bean - Green Windsor

This variety is shorter and broader podded than the longpods, averaging 4 large, dark green beans per pod and amongst the best heritage varieties for flavour. Used to make Brown Windsor soup, green Windsor is also a superb cooked vegetable. Surplus beans will freeze well without discolouring. It is slightly later to mature than the Longpods. Height: 100cm.

Sow seed in February under cloches, or from March to April outdoors. Ideally sow in double rows, 5cm deep and 20-23cm apart in the row, with 20-23 cm between each row. Allow at least 60cm between each double row. Germination takes about 10 days. Support the plants as they grow by placing a cane or stout stick at each corner and tying in with string, especially in windy gardens. Pinch out growing tips once first pods have set to deter blackfly. Keep well-watered particularly when flowers are setting.
