Qty:

Compact and bushy in habit, this is a true variety of Petit Pois and so produce masses of pods of tiny, sweet peas that are oh so sweet.

Perfect for Summer salads - but even better in risottos or similar! They also freeze very well.

The plants themselves only grow to around 24" (60 cm) tall, making them perfect for growing on mini pyramids or in tubs - or both!

  • For Early Cropping
  • Sow under protection in trays or modules February to March.
  • Set out when large enough to handle 5" (13 cm) apart in interspaced double rows 24" (60 cm) apart.
  • Can also be direct sown as per 'main cropping' under cloches February - March.
  • For Main Cropping
  • Sow March to July 5" (13 cm) apart in rows 24" (60 cm) apart. Sow in 2" (5 cm) deep drills.
  • Top Tips
  • Protect newly sown seeds from mice. Mice are notorious in 'sniffing out' seed of this nature!
  • Pheasants love young pea plants and will dig up the plants to eat the sprouted seed so take precautions (especially with Autumn sowings) if you have pheasants in your area.
  • Protect young plants from pigeons.
  • Though not entirely essential, providing some support (pea sticks, netting or canes) will keep the crop tidier and make harvesting easier.
  • A good precaution to prevent damage from Pea Moth or Pea Weevil is to spray the entire plant (flowers included) with our BioFriend Plant Defence periodically during the flowering period.
  • Water well if the weather is dry when the pods are swelling.
  • Regular picking will encourage further flowering and subsequent cropping. Peas freeze well so better to pick regularly and freeze any excess as this will keep the plants producing.
  • After harvesting dig the plants into the ground to provide green manure and valuable nitrogen to the soil.
