Once you’ve picked the spot, make a flat-bottomed trench 2 inches deep and sow the seeds approximately 3 inches apart. Then, cover them with soil and lightly firm and seedlings should appear in one or two weeks.
Support young plants by using large twigs in place for the tendrils to wrap around. Around 3 months after sowing, the peas should be ready to harvest – when the pods look full of peas. The pods at the bottom of the plant are most mature, so pick these first using two hands so you don’t damage the plant.
