How to Grow

How to grow video guide
From seed

Choose a sunny spot.

Loosen soil to a depth of 30cm and enrich with fertilisers.

Unless you know your soil has a high pH add liquid lime & dolomite to help raise soil pH.

Dampen soil and sow seeds approximately 2.5 cm deep.

Don't water again until seedlings appear.

From Plant

Choose a pot 60cm wide and 20cm deep.

Position in full sun, and protect from strong winds.

If required install a trellis.

Follow seed-> seedling guide.

Ready to harvest

Harvest once peas are plump.

Pick every 2-3 days to promote more peas.

Collect seed

If pea pods are not completely dry before the first frost, pull the plants up, root first, and hang them in a cool, dry location until the pods are brown and dry.

When the pea pods are completely dry, break them open to release the seeds.

Tips for Care

looks_one
Peas should be sown directly in the ground after September 9th, into damp soil.

Make sure your peas have something to cling onto as they grow (fence/trellis/sunflower stalks/corn stalks).
looks_two
Peas prefer cooler temperatures so a great late Winter, early Spring crop to plant in pots or the garden.
looks_3
Sow successive crops every 4-5 weeks to extend your harvest window.
looks_4
Try watering at the base of the plant to prevent fungal issues (i.e powdery mildew)
looks_5
After the season, dig the plants into the soil so they can add valuable nitrogen.
