Beans (Broad) Growing Guide
Crop Rotation Group
Legumes (Pea and Bean family) ●
Good, well-drained soil.
Not usually required.
Single Plants: 20cm (7") each way (minimum)
Rows: 15cm (5") with 30cm (11") row gap (minimum)
Sow and Plant
Sow direct into soil in rows. Early sowings should be protected by cloches or raised under cover in modules.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Support plants in windy places. Dig in roots when finished cropping as these return nitrogen to the soil.
Harvest before the pods become tough. Often get a second crop.
