Description

Swap the bean poles for telephone pea poles! This fabulous heirloom pea is a maincrop climbing pea which will reach 6 foot, using vertical space to give you a much bigger crop within a smaller area of ground. Around since the 1880s, these climbing peas fell out of fashion simply because they are too tricky to harvest commercially. However, this 'Telephone' Pea is perfect for the home grower. Harvest-ready in about 70 days, it produces masses of large pods, each containing 8-10 sweet and tender peas, over a long cropping period. Climb up a trellis or wigwam. (Wrinkled type). Maximum height: 180cm (6 foot). Spread: 25cm (10").

Sowing
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.
More Info
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.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
