Peas are one of the first crops we plant. Plant as soon as the ground can be workedeven if snow falls after you plant them!
Instruction how to grow Peas:
To get the best head start, turn over your pea planting beds in the fall, add manure to the soil, and mulch well.
As with other legumes, pea roots will fix nitrogen in the soil, making it available for other plants.
Peas will appreciate a good sprinkling of wood ashes to the soil before planting.
Sow seeds outdoors 4 to 6 weeks before last spring frost, when soil temperatures reach 45 degrees F.
Plant 1 inch deep (deeper if soil is dry) and 2 inches apart.
Get them in the ground while the soil is still cool, but do not have them sit too long in wet soil. Its a delicate balance of proper timing and weather conditions. For soil that stays wet longer, invest in raised garden beds.
A blanket of snow wont hurt emerging pea plants, but several days with temperatures in the teens could. Be prepared to plant again.
Peas are best grown in temperatures below 70 degrees F.
Check out this video to learn how to plant peas early while soil is cold.
Make sure that you have well-drained, humus-rich soil.
Poke in any seeds that wash out. (A chopstick is an ideal tool for this.)
Water sparsely unless the plants are wilting. Do not let plants dry out, or no pods will be produced.
For tall and vine varieties, establish poles or a trellis at time of planting.
Do not hoe around plants to avoid disturbing fragile roots.
Its best to rotate pea crops every year or two to avoid a buildup of soil-borne diseases.
