  • How to Grow Me

    Sowing/Planting Seeds

    • Sow seeds outdoors until June, ideally in a sunny location (or partial shade)

    • Soil to plant into needs to be well drained, fertile soil (e.g. compost added through soil)

    • Recommended to apply organic fertiliser to soil before sowing as peas are a hungry plant. 

    • Rake soil to break up any clumps

    • Position seeds 10cm apart when sowing, at a depth of 5cm.

    • Lightly press seed into soil, cover with soil, press down lightly and water well.

    • If sowing more than 1 row of seeds, position rows approx. 70cm apart and stagger position of seeds between rows.

    • Once plant has reached approx. 10cm in height, assist plant by tying it to a supporting stake/post with some string or anything similar (can be a simple stick, piece of bamboo, anything that will support its upright growth)

    • Keep the soil weed free, ensuring you don’t damage plant in the process.

    • Ensure soil remains moist, don’t allow to dry out. 

    • To encourage growth and deter pests/slugs, feed every 4 – 6 weeks or so with organic fertiliser (e.g. dried milled seaweed fertiliser, sachets available on sow.ie)

     

    Growing Time: 

    • Approx. 3 – 4 months

     

    Harvest

    • Harvest from bottom of stem, working upwards

     

    Tip: Harvest regularly to encourage new growth!
