Despite being dwarf in habit, Sutton yields as well as most taller varieties

The white seeded beans are deliciously tender and sweet.

An extremely hardy variety and so perfect for over-winter crops. Growing to only around 12" (30 cm) in height it also has the benefit of not needing support

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Set out when large enough to handle 9" (23 cm) apart in interspaced double rows 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • (can also be direct sown as per 'main cropping' under cloches February to March.
  • For Main Cropping
  • Sow March to May 9" (23 cm) apart in rows 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • Sow in 2" (5 cm) deep drills.

  • Sow in 2" (5 cm) deep drills.
  • Top Tips
  • Pheasants love young broad bean plants and will dig up the plants to eat the sprouted seed so take precautions (especially with Autumn sowings) if you have pheasants in your area.
  • Young broad bean tops make an excellent spinach substitute.
  • Support the plants with string lines as the plants grow taller.
  • Water well if the weather is dry when the pods are swelling.
  • As soon as the first beans appear pinch off the top 1½" of the stems to encourage pod development and to help reduce blackfly.
  • Pick the beans when they are young and tender - broad beans freeze well so better to freeze any excess rather than try and extend the season and end up eating tough beans.
  • After harvesting dig the plants into the ground to provide green manure and valuable nitrogen to the soil.
