Growing Great Broadbeans

Love them or loathe them, there are other reasons to grow broadbeans than just taste!

Not everybody is enamoured of the grown-up taste of broadbeans, but then again you may not have tasted them straight out of the pod. If you're still not convinced, there's another reason to use some space in your winter vegie patch to grow this legume. As a legume, each plant fixes nitrogen that is part of the air we breathe and makes it available to the plant through concentrating the nitrogen in nodules on the plant roots. It's all part of the soil web and makes any legumes especially beneficial to grow - both for your health and soil health.
