Broad Beans are best grown at home because they taste so much better fresh. They are interesting to grow because they grow quite large and in Spring can be harvested daily. They are best planted in rich soil in winter. You can use a trellis or stake the corners of the patch and run some twine around the outside so they can hold each other up.
