Broad Beans

Hi
I am in my first year of having an allotment and things are goin reasonably well. However, despite being told that Broad Beans wer 'easy' to grow and a good place to start i don't seem to have been ver successful. I put in some plants that i bought froma garden centre an also planted some from seed. The seeds i planted were doing well bu are noew infested with black fly! The plants i put in seem to have goe verty 'leggy' and have a have a yellow tinge to the stem. Everyone else on the plot are much bigger and healthier and are starting to produc beans. I am wondering if mine were a little far apart and may have bee damaged by the strong winds we have had (everyone elses seem to b packed closer together)
Any advice
