Sowing Season: Throughout the year.

Sowing method: Seeds are sown directly in raised beds or containers.

Sowing medium: 2 part garden soil & 1 part any organic manure or 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco peat & 1 part Vermicompost.

Steps for seed sowing (Seed starting) in a container:

  • Take a container of your choice with drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill the container with proper potting layers & selected growing medium.
  • Sow 2 seeds at the centre of the pot.

  • Spacing:
  • On raised beds, sow two seeds per spot in a spacing of 2 x 2 ft.
  • Push the seeds a little in the soil medium with your fingers & completely cover them with surrounding soil.
  • Water the sown seed bed immediately by a light shower using a watering can.

  • Growth stages of Broad Beans Plant:

    Sprouting Stage: Seeds will germinate within first 6-8 days & tiny sprouts will be visible.

    Cotyledons: The first two leaves will emerge in the second week of germination. These are false leaves called as cotyledons.

    First leaves: First leaves will emerge above cotyledons at the end of the second week.

    Seedling stage: Second week onwards, seedlings will start growing into a small plant.

  • After the second week, keep only single seedling at one spot, cut off the weak, small & lagging seedlings with a pair of scissors.

    How to take care for Broad Beans Plant:

    Sunlight: French bean plant requires full sunlight. Therefore your raised bed should be made at a bright sunny spot. Keep the French bean container under open sunlight.

    Watering: Water your potted French bean plant every alternate day in winter & every day in summer. Water at the soil near the plant. Use a watering can to make sure that the plants get water in the form of a shower & not by a single flow. You can also make provision for watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds.

    Trellis: Surti papdi plant is a bushy Vine & needs plenty of space to grow. So develop a strong trellis support up to height of 5-6 ft, by using locally available material like pipes, bamboo, ropes, wires etc. for your Surati Papdi plant.

    Manuring: As mentioned earlier, add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before sowing seeds. organic fertilizer. can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost or vermicompost.

    Top Dressing: When your French bean plant is more than 45 days old, provide one tablespoon of 15:15:15 (NPK) fertilizer per plant or mix handful of Vermicompost in the soil around each plant.

    Plant care: Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted.

    Harvesting: (45 to 50 days from sowing) Surti Papdi will start flowering at second month itself. You can start harvesting fresh Surti Papdi pods after 45-50 on seed sowing. Harvesting season can continue for very long time as long as plant survives.
