Grow Delicious Broad Beans Aquadulce Claudia from Seed

Enjoy an early spring harvest with Aquadulce Claudia, a winter-hardy broad bean variety perfect for the UK climate. This guide provides essential steps to cultivate successful crops:

Sowing (Autumn or Spring):

  • Autumn Sowing: For an early harvest, sow outdoors in well-drained soil October-November, 5cm deep with 25cm spacing.
  • Spring Sowing: Alternatively, sow indoors in trays during February-April, transplanting outdoors after frost risk has passed.

Protect seeds from rodents with netting or use the Grown Local 28 Cell Deep Root Success Kit

  • Deep cell design fosters strong root development for healthy seedlings.
  • Easy transplanting without disturbing roots thanks to the unique “spilt cell” design.
  • Made to last a life time from recycled plastic.
  • Dishwasher safe for effortless cleaning.

Caring for Seedlings:

  • Potting On: When seedlings have true leaves, carefully transfer them to individual pots with multipurpose compost. Or, continue using the Deep Root Success Kit cells for even stronger seedlings.
  • Transplanting: Wait until frost risk is gone and seedlings have strong roots before planting outdoors in a sunny, well-drained spot, spacing 60cm apart.

Growth & Maintenance:

  • Water Regularly: Ensure consistent watering, especially during flowering and pod development.
  • Sunshine & Support: Broad beans thrive in sunny locations. Consider using canes for support as they grow tall.
  • Pinching for Better Pods: Pinch off the top 7.5cm of the plants after first flowering to encourage pod development and deter blackfly.
  • Pest Protection: If pheasants are a concern, use netting or fencing. Consider companion planting with marigolds for natural pest control.

Harvesting & Enjoyment:

  • Pick Young & Tender: Harvest pods when young and tender for the best flavour and texture.

Bonus Tip: After harvesting, dig spent plants back into the soil as green manure to enrich it with nitrogen.
