Broad Bean - Statissa
Broad Bean 'Statissa' is a superb, compact variety with a neat upright habit that makes it ideal for growing in containers. This early setting variety produces short, slender pods. Harvest them regularly while still small for delicious 'mangetout' pods to eat raw or steamed, or allow the pods to fill out with tasty small beans. Height: 70cm. Spread: 30cm.
Sow seeds from March to May. Sow seeds thinly direct outside or in containers, 3cm deep in rows 45cm apart. As plants mature they may require staking with hazel twigs or canes to help support the crop. Keep well watered during dry weather.
