One thought on “Episode 191. How I over winter broad beans.

  • Overwintering broad beans involves planting them in late autumn, allowing the plants to establish before winter. Provide a protective layer of mulch to shield them from harsh conditions. In spring, they resume growth, offering an early harvest. This simple technique ensures a robust crop of broad beans with minimal effort.
