Message: We have always planted our broad bean seed in November and have produced bountiful crops of beans in the spring. The autumn sowing prevents black fly attack. The method I have adopted, which I had learnt from my late father in law, was to make a hole about 4" deep with a dibber and place two beans into the hole. This ensures that one will at least germinate and when they both grow they help to support each other in windy conditions.

Message: I read that broadbeans are best sown in early winter rather than autumn. When would early winter start as opposed to late autumn. I live in SW Ireland and am liming the soil for the first time in about 4 years. The ground is well drained but we do have a lot of rain 'though it generally never gets more than 4 deg. frost (except for last year when we got 9 degrees). How much lime should one apply - also for asparagus. Many thanks. Brigid Smyth
