Broad Bean - The Sutton Dwarf

The Sutton Dwarf is perfect for small gardens. It produces abundant crops on dwarf plants, ideal for successional sowings. It is a hardy, stocky plant, suitable for more exposed locations and small gardens, reaching the height of 45cm.

Sow outdoors from February to May, where they are to crop, 5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. To make the best use of space, sow seeds 23cm apart, in a wide row in a zigzag pattern, leaving a space of 60cm between each row. Seedlings usually appear in 10-18 days. Water well until plants are established. Successional sowings will ensure a continuous supply and longer harvest. Or sow indoors from February to April, 2.5cm deep into individual pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, avoiding frosts, before planting out, 23cm apart during April-May. Harvest from June to August.
