Hi there, I have broccoli growing and aquadulce broad beans. Are these compatible? I don’t think these beans climb as much as some others but find it hard to distinguish between dwarf and climbing for these. Thank you!

By the info I provided below and your concern about growing broccoli near beans, you can grow near dwarf but not recommended near climbing. By the sounds of it climbing beans need to climb (twine) up a trellis/pole etc. Broad beans do not do this, therefore I would call BB dwarf beans. JMO.

If you have a search aquadulce fava bean - you will find info about height etc.
