Peas and beans are easy to grow and great for children too. Sowing in succession (every few weeks) means you'll have a continuous crop throughout the summer. Try growing sweet peas next to your runner beans to improve pollination.

Vicia faba, Fava Beans

Broad beans are high in protein, productive, and easy to grow in most soils and conditions. Delicious eaten fresh and steamed, but any surplus crops freeze particularly well. This Broad Bean Collection contains 3 superb varieties. Height: Up to 120cm (47"). Spread: 45cm (18").


  • Collection comprises one packet each of:
  • Broad Bean 'Aquadulce Claudia' - This variety is universally recognised as being best for an autumn sowing to produce a very early crop of delicious, white seeded pods.

 Customer Rating
  • The answer to gardeners' prayers - guaranteed to set beans in any weather!

A major breakthrough in British runner bean breeding, offering predominantly self setting plants for a guaranteed crop.

The vastly improved flower setting of Runner Bean ‘Moonlight’ means an earlier and continual crop even during poor weather. Height: 3m (10’). Spread: 30cm (12").
