Vicia faba
BEAN-COLES BROAD EARLY-DWARF is a heavy cropping compact bush to 1m tall. A hardy very early dwarf variety of broad bean that is an excellent choice for areas that are prone to winds and storms during the growing season as it has fewer tendencies to blow down.  This is an early, prolific cropper of medium plants growing about 1m with average length pods of 20cm. Full of flavour and a strong hardy grower. Broad beans like a rich well dug soil but most soils will give a satisfactory crop. If possible feed the soil before sowing with a general fertiliser. Hardy annual.
