Broad Beans

Broad beans were planted late this year, April 16th 2018.  The ground was very wet.

Aqua dulce is the variety.

A lot of slug pellets were needed around the emerging plants.  Also to try and keep the black fly off they were covered in fleece.

Date of photo of beans covered in fleece.- 28th May 2018 – Hoops and garden canes were used to hold the fleece above the plants and pegged down along the edges.
