Complete Guide to Growing Aquadulce Claudia Broad Beans

Interested in a winter-hardy broad bean variety? You’re in the right place. This guide will help you successfully grow and harvest Aquadulce Claudia beans.

Getting Started: Autumn Sowing

Starting with autumn sowing sets you up for an early spring harvest.

Sowing Guidelines

Plant the seeds 2 inches (5 cm) deep, with a spacing of 10 inches (25 cm) in rows that are 24 inches (60 cm) apart. After you’ve sowed the seeds, water them well and lightly cover them with compost.

Plant Care: Nurturing Your Seedlings

Potting On

When the seedlings show signs of sturdiness and healthy growth, transfer them into small pots. Fill these pots with peat-free multi-purpose compost and water thoroughly.

Transplanting Tips

Wait for the seedlings to develop a second set of leaves and then transplant them to their permanent outdoor location. This encourages a robust root system.

Maintenance and Harvesting

Care Tips

Place the plants in a sunny, well-drained location. Maintain consistent watering, especially when you notice the first beans appearing.

Additional Care Measures

Pinch off the top 3 inches (7.5 cm) of the plants to assist in pod development and to control blackfly.

Protecting Your Crop

Take precautions like netting or fencing if pheasants frequent your area.

Companion Planting

Summer Savory can act as a natural deterrent against pests when planted alongside your broad beans.

Harvesting Guidelines

Harvest the beans when they are young and tender for optimal flavour. These beans are also suitable for freezing to maintain their quality.

Aftercare and Soil Benefits

Enriching the Soil

After harvesting, dig the spent plants back into the ground as green manure. This enriches the soil and enhances its nutrient content due to the nitrogen-fixing properties of these plants.
