Side branches on broad bean plants
Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
I grow Aquadulce broad beans and have just finishing harvesting my crop. I notice that only the main stem has beans on it. Several smaller stems grow on most plants, either branching from the main stem or else growing up from the below ground. None of these ever has any beans on them that come to anything, It would therefore seem sensible to remove these smaller stems early thus concentrating growth on the main stems. Any comments anyone?
