Fava beans prefer cool temperatures and can survive temperatures down to 15 degrees F, plant them very early in spring as soon as the ground can be worked. These plants do not do well in heat, so some gardeners in warmer regions plant them in the fall for a late winter crop, overwinter them, and get another crop in early spring. Place the seeds 2″ deep in the ground and about 6″ apart, in rows about 1-3′ apart. This plant can thrive in poor soil, so no fertilization is necessary. Germination usually takes place in 7-14 days.
