We're seriously expanding our pea production this year, for drying and freezer stocks.
Put up extra pea fences for them to climb, planted out seedlings and sowed direct.
The successional programme: One half of each fence on one side = pre-grown seedlings, sown in early April. Second half of same side, each fence = direct sown seeds, yesterday. First and second halves of second side, each fence = to be sown May and early June.
Varieties: Havel, Douce Provence, Golden mangetout, Bijou mangetout, Carlin peas, Marrowfat peas, plus two Swedish heirloom varieties: Solberga and Visingsö.
