Direct sow peas outdoors from March to June, once the soil as warmed. In mild areas, some hardy, early maturing cultivars may be sown in late autumn for overwintering. Choose a weed-free position on moist, fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow pea seed in flat bottomed drills at a distance of 5cm (2") apart, and 4cm (1½") deep. Allow a distance of 75cm (30") between rows. For successional crops, sow peas every 10 days.
Support pea plants with twiggy sticks, wire or netting as they grow, and use fine netting to protect pea crops from birds and pea moth damage. When growing peas, regular and thorough watering especially when in flower will improve crop yields. Harvest peas around 14 weeks after sowing when the pods have swollen. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.

  1. An excellent idea

    By Mark Ballington 03-05-2011

    This is my second year of growing this collection. It works very well, good germination, and has instantly become an important part of the vegatable garden. I can recomend, this collection for taste and performance. I have sown the first 3 packets for this year, and the first packet has sprouted. Excellent germination rate. In the next week or so will sow the last packet. Well done for coming up with such a good idea.
