Peas do best in an open position, but not one that is too exposed. They are naturally a cold weather crop, growing best in spring and cool summers. They do not thrive in hot weather, drought or poorly drained soils. Ideally the soil should be fertile, with the addition of well-rotted organic matter (such as Orgro) being particularly beneficial.
We recommend setting the plants 11cm/4.5in apart in rows spaced 45cm/18in apart. As the peas start to grow it is important to provide support with netting or pea sticks. Keep the plants well-watered, especially in dry spells of weather. Read more
About our Veg Plants
Vegetable plants are the perfect choice if you don’t have the time or facilities to grow lots of different varieties from seed. They are also useful for replacing plants lost to the weather or pests and diseases. Grown by experienced nurserymen, our plants will be delivered at the right time for growing in their final position on your plot. Hand graded and packed, they are sent directly from the nursery and fully hardened off before despatch. All varieties are supplied with easy-to-follow growing hints and instructions. Show less
