Tussiemussie's Garden

Peas / sugar snap.

Genus: Pisum.

Species: Pisum sativum.

Plant in a sunny spot or sugar content will be low.Plant early, frost tolerant.
Peas grow best in a 16-inch wide double row, with a 16 inch wide pathway between rows. They won't need staking if planted this way because the plants will hold each other up, and a dense crop will shade the soil to help eliminate weeds and conserve moisture. Cover seedlings with twigs or netting to deter birds.
Victoriana, old variety, grows tall like runner beans and if picked regularly keep cropping for a much longer period than the modern varieties.
Early peas short variety early onward, can be planted in february, I planted mine late febuary and they are emerging now 25thmarch, yum fresh peas soon!
