Hi Kate, I was the same as you when I first took over my plot wanted to plant every thing at once so I planted broad beans . What do you mean special broad beans there all the same [twit] when the first frost came so did the death of my broad beans. Now I know the differance Super Aquaduice Winter Broad Bean,planted 65 beans in Oct/Nov had about 20lb ready for the freezer, that was 2010.This year planted two packets approx 140 beans they stand about 2/3ft high plant in the late time of the year beat the black fly. Remember when you walk down your line of peas and you pick one open it and pop them in your mouth remember YOU DID IT THE DIDN'T.
