Peas have a high protein content and are a significant source of Vitamins. Growing Tips: A cool weather crop that should be planted as soon as the garden has thawed and the soil is workable in early spring. Sow very heavily with about 20 to 30 seeds per foot in 10-15cm (4-6”) wide double rows that are spaced 60cm (24”) apart. Place a support trellis between the rows and do not thin the emerging seedlings. Fertilize at planting time with a fertilizer high in phosphorous and potassium such as Gaia Green Organic Fertilizer. To increase yields, seed may be treated with Garden Legume Inoculant prior to planting.
