Posted on 31st October, by allotments in News. No Comments

I spotted these healthy over-wintering broad beans at Muriel Jones Field yesterday afternoon.There’s nothing quite like an Autumn sowing for ensuring an early crop next year.

It will be interesting to see how they do over the winter. The plot holder has used an extended windbreak to provide some protection from the worst of the weather.

Albert at Welshmill always plants his Autumn broad beans near to the hedge, to shelter from the frost and the wind.
