Planting broad beans
Hi,is it possible to grow broad beans now? I have pulled all potatoes and have a large space empty,if so should I grow them as plants to set out or can I just put in as beans. Many thanks

Broad beans are normally sown in the spring, from February to April. However some varieties are particularly hardy and can be sown in autumn from October to November (provided that the soil is still reasonably warm). November sowings usually germinate within 2-3 weeks.
