Bean, Broad ‘Coles Dwarf’
Smaller growing and earlier cropping than ‘Aquadulce’. Our strain is rigorously reselected to give long pods often holding 5 beans per pod. Although dwarfer growing than ‘Aquadulce’ this variety will still need staking.
When to sow: July and August (earlier in mild climates)
Where to sow: Direct into the garden
Depth to sow: 3cm
Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing: Between plants 10-15 cm
Between rows 60 to 90 cm apart
Directions: Broad beans are cool season crops best planted in southern Australia in July and August. Both frosty and hot weather inhibits pod set. All broad bean varieties need staking.
