Pea Early Onward Seeds
Info: Pea `Early Onward` is a widely grown, long-standing favourite that is short jointed with vigorous growth (60 cm in height). Therefore, it requires little support. The plants bear a great amount of blunt well filled, dark green pods with 6 to 8 peas per pod with sweet tasting fine flavoured peas. They are suitable for fresh picking or freezing. `Early Onward` can be autumn or spring sown as the plants are winter hardy and is an ideal second early variety, perfect for successional sowing.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow when the soil is warm to the touch, which will be some time between the middle of March and the end of April. Sowing depth: 4-5 cm. Peas require a sunny position with well-drained and nutrient-rich soil, but not acidic. Use bamboo canes, pea sticks, trellis, netting or chicken wire as a climbing support for the plants. Once you feel the seeds in the pod, the peas are ripe for harvest. The more you harvest, the more they will produce. As the containing sugar decomposes very quickly, they taste sweetest immediately after harvesting.
