How To Grow
Sow Autumn through to Spring to avoid flowering during frost periods.
Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6”) wide and 5cm (2”) deep. Ensure soil has been well prepared with compost and/or organic materials. Plant seeds into dark, damp soil in a zigzag fashion along the middle of the trench allowing 5cm (2”) between each seed.Fill trench with soil and firm down gently.
Rows should be spaced 45cm (18”) apart and approx. 2m (6.5’) long. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth.We advise using sticks or twigs to support the crop and this will make picking easier and improve yields.Keep well watered.
Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
Once germinated water regularly.
When To Plant
Autumn through to Spring. In cooler zones, early summer sowing also suggested.
No further fertilising required as peas produce their own nitrogen.
