Description – Masses of flowers, producing 3-4 dark green pods per node. Excellent powdery mildew resistance allows sowing into July to extend the cropping season. Ideally suited to grow in a larger patio container or in raised beds.
Sowing – Sow every 3 weeks from March to July for successional cropping. Sow 4cm (1½in) deep in flat-bottomed drills, spacing about 2.5-5cm (1-2in) apart and allowing 60cm (24in) between rows.
Growing – Watering when in flower will improve the crop. The peas are ready to pick around 14 weeks from the sowing date. Regular picking will improve cropping. Best grown in a block to be self-supporting.
Harvest – June to October
