Peas and beans are easy to grow and great for children too. Sowing in succession (every few weeks) means you'll have a continuous crop throughout the summer. Try growing sweet peas next to your runner beans to improve pollination.
Pea 'Starlight' (Early Maincrop)
A British bred early maincrop that makes an attractive addition to the vegetable plot, with pale pods standing out against its dark green foliage. This wrinkle seeded variety produces an incredible two to three pods per node - each carried at an angle above the foliage to make harvesting particularly easy. An excellent RHS AGM variety, Pea 'Starlight' also shows a high resistance to downy mildew. Height: 65cm (26"). Spread: 25cm (10").
