SOIL PREPARATION: Broad beans are heavy feeders for the legume family. Add plenty of compost and/or manure. The optimum soil pH is between 6 - 7.
CULTURE: Keep free of weeds. Water regularly, especially when the plants start to flower, and beans start forming. Some people find it worth while to plant 2 - 3 rows close together, as it helps protect the plants against heavy winds and rain, as well as creating a micro-climate with an increased humidity for the plants. Staking the plants will improve the yield of the crop. To stake, run a string in front of and behind each row.
