Runner/broad bean crop rotation
« on: March 06, 2010, 11:51 »
Hi,

Have I dreamt it, or is it the case that runner and broad beans can be grown in the same place in successive years?
Cheers
Steve

I know that a lot of the 'old boys' grow their runner beans in the same place each year, but the digging of a bean trench effectively changes the soil beneath them each year IMO, so although the beans haven't moved..the soil has :)

I know nowt about broad beans though, but thought they did move  :blink:

I move mine round with my normal rotation, but I only train them up Bamboo canes. If I had a proper Munty Frame I'd want to leave then in the same place each year I reckon.

What's that got to do with rotation?
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

Not necessarily from China either. My bamboo is in my back garden  :D
