Broad beans and peas


I sowed 16 broad bean 'Aquadulce Claudia', 24 pea 'Meteor' and 24 pea 'Feltham First' today. I'm a few weeks late but really they can be sown any-time from October through to May.

I have the beans in small pots and the peas in modular trays and I'm keeping them in the poly-tunnel. So they will catch up with anything planted outside and I'll plant them out in the spring and should be cropping around late May to early June.

These are the best varieties for autumn / winter sowing that I could find.
