How to Pinch-out Tops of Broad Beans

Posted Apr 21 2009 11:00pm

Gardeners often pinch out the tops of broad beans to curb black fly.  We very rarely pinch out the tops. But if blackfly are a problem, the tips may be pinched out when the first pods are set.

To pinch out the tops:

* first select the top of the broad bean plant

* Hold the tip between finger and thumb
