Tips: Sow seed 1-1½ inches deep in double rows 3-6 inches apart, 2 feet between the next double row. Plants will tolerate crowding so may be spaced 2 inches apart. All peas, including dwarf types, are natural climbers. They are more productive, and not as susceptible to rot, if given some support or planted along a fence or trellis. Peas prefer cool growing conditions. Plants are hardy and will tolerate light frosts, so you may plant as soon as the ground can be worked. If using untreated varieties, we advise caution to avoid planting in cold, wet, poorly aerated soils. 500g sows a 100 ft row.
