Bottle Cloches (1)

Broad beans snug and warm and just as importantly protected from the fierce winds we have had to endure recently.

I find that bottle cloches are ideal for protecting over-wintering broad bean plants. If at all possible I use Robinson's bottles as they are satifyingly rigid. Sugar Free Pink Grapefruit bottles give the best results of all as they deter slugs.

When the plants get too large for the bottles I will replace them with fleece (probably). Posted by Hello
