Top Tips for Growing Peas

peasPicking pea pods is a lot of fun, particularly with children, and that’s why peas are of our favourite veg to grow here at Rocket Gardens. If you fancy giving it a go this year, then simply follow these top tips and you’ll get a good crop!

  1. Choose a nice sunny, sheltered spot for your peas.
  2. When you plant the peas, give each plant a medium sized, twiggy stick to climb up. Just prod it into the ground next to the plant. Hazel sticks are great.
  3. Cover your pea plants with netting so that the birds don’t steal the pods!
  4. Water them well once a week once they start flowering.
  5. Pick pods regularly to encourage more growth.
