Karmazyn - Autumn or Spring Planting Broad Beans - 35 Seeds
Best for exposed sites!
- Produces unusual carmine-pink seeds
- This variety does not grow too tall so is suitable for small gardens or exposed sites
- Sow direct 5cm deep and 10cm apart into well-drained soil in a sunny spot. Protect from mice and slugs. If growing over winter, cover plants with a cloche during the very worst weather to prevent damage.
- Support loosely with canes and string once they reach 15cm tall and pinch out the tops to prevent blackfly. Broad beans 'fix' nitrogen from the air, so cut spent plants off at ground level and leave roots to rot back into the ground to release nitrogen for next year's crops.
