Thompson & Morgan Broad Bean Witkiem 30 Seed

£2.99

Broad Bean - Witkiem

Perfect for early sowings in February, as this variety shows excellent tolerance to cold weather. Broad Bean Witkiem produces a good crop of plump, well-filled pods with big tasty beans which will be ready to harvest in June. Recommended for home freezing. Broad Bean Witkiem can also be sown successionally through to May. Height: 100cm.

Ideally sow seeds in double rows, 5cm deep in well prepared soil, 20-23cm apart both in the row and 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 sites. Keep well-watered especially when flowering and as pods set. Pinch out growing tip once pods have set to help deter blackfly. Pick regularly as the pods swell and the beans are tasty, soft and tender, and to promote further pod production.
