£2.69

Broad Bean - Monica

This is a vigorous white seeded variety. The plants are probably the earliest to crop from a spring sowing. It produces reliable, high yields of broad 'hang-down' pods, each containing 5-6 large, great tasting, succulent beans. The plants reach the height of 100cm.

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.
