|I have never had much luck with favas, my grandfather always grew them but I never learned the secret to his success. Such as when? How deep? How far apart? Soil conditions? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

|Fava beans do best in cooler weather, so they should be planted early the way you would plant peas. They can also be planted as a fall crop. Plant them about an inch deep and six inches apart with the rows about 18 inches apart for a tight spacing. Average good garden soil should be fine.
