I agree with dovefromabove, I have planted Aquadulce every autumn for several years even the last two which were pretty chilly here in the Fens - I don't think that a single plant was lost. They tend to produce beans about 3 weeks before spring planted beans, which is nice, but also it is one less task for the busy spring gardener. My veg garden is small, so the early broad bean harvest frees up space for another crop. Fleece just gets ripped to shreds in my rather exposed plot.
