Planting+
Peas in the pod are really just ordinary peas. Peas require no prior treatment although you could steep them in lukewarm water for 24 hours to encourage germination. Leaving them in water for longer (3-4 days) will see them shoot a 1 cm root, after which you really must sow them. Harvesting will be one week earlier if you do this.

Choose a spot where there is no fresh manure in the soil, and not too wet or cold. Improve the soil with humus (no fertiliser!) if necessary.

Tall and medium height peas need support and help to climb. Use chicken wire stretched between two poles. 120 cm high for medium peas... 2 m for taller. The pea tendrils generally manage to climb themselves but a little help will do no harm. Tip: place the chicken wire before sowing!
Care+
Earth up your pea plants when they reach 12 cm in height.

Provide extra water in dry periods only and keep the bed weed-free to encourage your peas to thrive.
