Not too difficult to grow
Regularly sow seed 3cm deep in pots and transplant, or sow in two lines in 10cm wide rows (seeds 5cm apart). Space rows of seeds 60-90cm apart.
Protect seedlings from birds. Water established plants when flowering starts. Support plants with wire, netting or sticks.
Cut ‘mangetout’ when pods are still flat. Cut ‘shelling’ types when peas are felt through the pod. Pick regularly for more pods.
