Maybe its an altitude thing then, because I picked them all around the end of May, the winter ones just sat there and by April you couldnt tell the difference. They reckon for every 100mtrs above sea level, you can deduct 1deg c, thats 3 for me.
The winter sown and planted Spring greens did very well, I have been picking since about March. Not so with the broad beans.
My dad, who has gardened here since 1986 said they wouldnt do well, but I needed to try for myself.!
