BROAD BEAN TRIAL 2011

Posted by sheiladearing on 20 Apr 2011 at 03:01 PM

This year, in conjunction with Wisely, we are running a broad bean trial. We are trialling 29 different cultivars. These were sown in a cold tunnel on the 23rd February; one seed per 9cm pot. They were planted out as small plants on the 7th April. I was surprised how much variation there was in the shape of the broad bean seeds, some were small and round like peas.

The trial will continue over the summer so why not visit Rosemoor to see how they are getting on.
