Broad Beans
« on: January 19, 2017, 11:31:40 »
Hello People,
I posted just before Christmas that my Broad beans had not popped up.  Many thanks to all who answered.  Well they are about 5 cm high now. I worried un-necessarily.

The "Aquadulce" variety is outstripping "Monica" by a fair bit.

It's great when something you think has failed suddenly pops it's head up...

I've only just potted mine up in the greenhouse, a neighbours was growing well until the mice decided they were hungry

I heard Terry Walton on radio 2 yesterday saying he chucks his BB seeds in a sealable freezer bag with damp compost first to check viability, then pots up those that sprout. Might try it with my next lot.
