Broad Bean - The Sutton
This is an excellent dwarf variety only 30cm high that produces lots of 13-15cm pods each bearing five small, but deliciously tender beans. Broad Bean The Sutton is very suitable for successional sowings commencing late autumn (under cloches) or late winter/early summer in the open. Ideal for the small garden.
Sow the seeds any time in the open ground from March to July or under cloches from November to February. Sow 5cm deep, 23cm apart in rows 30cm apart. Any fertile, well-drained soil is suitable but light soil is best for autumn sowing.
