Growing Cascadia Sugar Snap Pea
Garden peas are climbing plants and for best productivity and ease of harvest they should be grown on a short trellis.
Best grown in full sun but can also cope with very light shade.
Sow pea seeds 2.5cm deep and space seeds 6cm apart to form a vigorous wall of pea plants.
Plant directly where they are to grow as peas can suffer from transplant shock.
Water once and don’t water again until the seedlings emerge to reduce the chance of the pea seeds rotting in the soil.
Germination takes 9 – 14 days.
Harvest 12 – 14 weeks after sowing.
