Planting Instructions:


Soil Preparation:

Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


In the Spring, sow after all danger of frost has passed in loose, fertile, moist, well-draining soil in full sun when soil temperature is greater than 50F. In the Fall, plant 8-10 weeks before the first expected frost. Plant pea seeds 1 inch deep and 1 to 3 inches apart in the rows that are 2½ to 3 feet apart. Set a trellis or fence about 3-4 feet in height for the climbing tendrils.  Planting in moist soil is best for seeds to germinate and emerge quickly.

Planting Depth: 1 inch
Within-Row Spacing:
3 inches
Between-Row Spacing:
2 1/2-3 feet


Care During the Season:

Watering: Water the plants about once a week in dry weather. Try not to let the soil dry out while the peas are blooming or the blooms will drop and yields will be decreased.

Weeding: The roots of beans grow near the soil surface. When hoeing and pulling weeds, try not to dig too deep to prevent the plant's roots from damage.

Fertilizing: As the plants begin to flower, you may optionally apply fertilizer by scattering between the rows about 1/2 cup of fertilizer for every 10 feet of row. Water the plants after fertilizing.

Insecticides: Insecticides may be used to protect plants. Bt-based insecticides and sulfur are organic options. Sulfur also has fungicidal properties and helps in controlling many diseases. Before using a pesticide, read the label and always follow cautions, warnings and directions.

Diseases: Diseases may be a possibility during cool, wet weather. If spots appear on leaves or bean pods, treat the plant with an approved fungicide. Neem oil, sulfur, and other fungicides may be used.


Pick young pods when they are full length, pods are plump, and a healthy green color. Peas left to mature too long on the vine can be fibrous or stringy.
