How to grow overwinter chillies and broad beans

Late Summer often is overlooked as an ideal chance to sow more seeds but with a little planning, there's much to sow.

One thing well worth sowing is some chillies. Richard loves chillies but does find they need a long growing period. Because of this he has started sowing some chillies no to over winter.

Richard also loves to grow over winter broad beans. These will grow in the ground over winter and make the plot look like something is happening in the deepest darkest depths of winter.

In this podcast Richard shares how he goes about growing both of these plants over the winter months.
