Sowing (Autumn or Spring):

  • Dishwasher safe for effortless cleaning after use, saving you time and hassle.

Caring for Seedlings:

  • Potting On: When seedlings have true leaves, carefully transfer them to individual pots with multipurpose compost.
  • 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: Once the first flowers have set, pinch out the growing tip above the top 2-3 flower trusses. This encourages branching and more pods.


  • Harvest pods when they are plump and the beans inside are still young and tender. This usually occurs from late May to July.


  • Companion Planting: Consider planting savory herbs like marigolds or thyme near your broad beans to deter pests.
  • Mulching: Applying a layer of mulch around your plants can help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Succession Sowing: Sow seeds every few weeks throughout spring to extend your harvest period.
