Step 1 - Sowing
When to Sow: Peas can be sown from March until June once the soil has warmed up after the cold winter months (must always be at least 10 degrees Celsius). If you are growing peas indoors these can be grown all year round but will need at least 8-10 hours of bright light.
Where to Sow: Peas can be grown in lots of different ways. You can sow them straight in the soil in the garden or grow them in pots or trays to plant out later. You can even sow them into a tray or small container and instead of letting them grow to full size you can eat the tiny little shoots in a salad when they are about 10cm high.
How to Sow: Sow peas 3-5cm deep. If sowing in soil dig a trench 15cm wide and 4cm deep and place the peas on the surface in two staggered rows at least 5cm apart. If growing in containers fill your container with soil, scatter your peas over the surface and poke them down with your finger.
Sowing Tip: You can enjoy fresh peas from May to October if you succession sow (do at least two sowings).
