|Growth Height — 1.5m|
Sow in flat trenches 15cm wide, and 5cm deep. Plant seeds into dark, damp well-prepared soil in a zig-zag fashion along the middle of the trench, allowing 7.5cm between them. Fill trenches with soil and gently firm down. Where more than one row of peas is required, allow 90cm between rows.
Provide a trellis for the peas to climb. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth. We advise using sticks or twigs to support the crop as this will make picking easier and improve yields. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days. Keep well watered once germinated.
Keep your plant well watered in dry and hot conditions.
