Been given some broad bean plants
« on: March 23, 2007, 13:23 »
I'm the lucky recipient of 20 broad bean plants in 3 inch pots, all about 6 inches high now. Unfortunately I don't know what variety they are or where they were kept previously.

Can I just plant them out or do they need hardening off? Any other tips gratefully received - thanks

If you don't know their history, I'd play safe, harden them off & then plant out.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Right put them out and they drooped over within an hour  :(  Is that supposed to happen? They have support canes now  :)
