Leggy broad bean plants
I planted broad beans in small pots in a cold greenhouse in November. They grew very fast and, despite having pinched out the tips, they are now about eighteen inches tall. I have moved them to the cold frame but wonder if I should cut them down before planting out in the veg plot. Would they grow up from the bottom or should I just stake them as they are? Advice please (I am very much a 'novice' veg grower but am really trying to extend my range. Had some success with cabbages and sprouts which I grew for the first time this year (though they are sheltering a HUGE army of slugs) but could not get carrots to germinate and leeks were very poor. We have very heavy clay soil. Any words of wisdom gratefully received!
