Broad beans are tough old things. You can start them out under glass in February or March and plant them out in May when frosts are over. You can grow them in the ground. I have grown them in old plastic bins and they did well. They are loved by slugs, snails, birds and black fly. The thing to remember is that sometimes attack is the best form of defence so, if you see nibbling going on deal with it as soon as you can.
