The Chef has sown some Express Broad Beans in his plot.
The broad bean variety Express was most successful when grown in the TopVeg vegetable garden. Click this link to read about our verdict on Express Broad Beans.
The broad beans were planted:
- in a double row set 23cm (9″) apart
- at a depth of 5cm (2″) deep
- at a distance of 23cm (9″) apart within each row
It will be interesting to see when they come through. A few days after planting the temperature dropped to freezing point which will slow down germination. Express broad beans usually germinate ten days after they are sown, but they are likely to be slower this season.
