A long podded, white-seeded tasty broad bean that's early to mature, Aquadulce Claudia is recommended for autumn and winter sowings throughout the U.K. for the earliest crops the following spring and summer. Sow direct into soil prepared by digging and raking at a depth of 50mm (2"), spacing the seeds 15-23cm (6-9") apart. Best sown alternately in double rows allowing 23cm (9") between the two lines forming each row. Allow 60-90cm (24-36") between further rows. Germination up to 21 days.
Can also be sown in pots or trays of compost on a windowsill or in a greenhouse for eventual planting outside. Grows best in a sheltered site, but not shaded, in well drained soil. Sowing - cropping: 24 weeks. For earliest crops sow late October-November but can be sown right through to late January. It is advisable to pinch out tips of plants when first pods have set to deter blackfly. Packet sufficient for a double row of approximately 3.8m (12½').
