  • Starting: Sow seeds 2cm (1") deep. After April 15th, sow seeds 5cm (2") deep. Space seeds 2-7cm (1-3") apart in rows. Do not thin.
  • Growing Conditions: Use well-drained soil amended with finished compost. Add 2 cups of rock phosphate or bonemeal per 3m (10') row. Support plants with a trellis or fence as they climb.

Harvesting:

Pick pods at the desired stage. Multiple sowings or growing several varieties can extend the harvest season.

Tips for Blanching Peas:

To freeze peas for fall and winter use, blanching is essential. Submerge peas in boiling water briefly to kill enzymes, then cool in ice water before drying and freezing.

  • Snap and Snow Peas: Boil whole pods for two minutes, then cool in ice water.
  • Shelled Peas: Boil for ninety seconds, then cool in ice water. Dry thoroughly before storing in zip-top or vacuum bags.

Companion Planting:

Excellent companions include beans, carrots, celery, corn, cucumber, eggplant, parsley, peppers, potatoes, radish, spinach, strawberries, and turnips. Avoid planting near onions.
