Growing green peas at home- All that you should know! I hope you would have loved my previous blog post about “summer squash”. I was wondering what to write about when this frisky thought...
Green peas are relatively easy to grow, making them a good choice for a first-time gardener or a new garden plot. Keep in mind that pot grown peas require more water than garden grown, possibly up to three times a day.
Here are few simple steps to grow green peas in containers.
- Buy green peas seeds and soak it in water overnight, then sow the seeds 5 centimeters (two inches) apart. Plant 8 seeds in a pot.
- Choose a terra cotta pot which having 12-inch diameter in the bottom and 16- 18 inch across on the top. Leaving 1-2 inch space on top. Put the seeds about 3/4-inch (two centimeters) down in the soil.
- It grows best in well-drained soil having pH range of 6 to 8. Ideal temperature for green peas cultivation is between 10*C to 30*C and 500 mm of rainfall is ideal for its growth. They love a sunny spot but not extreme heat or too much wind. They like moist soil but not waterlogged feet!
- When the peas seedlings have grown 4-inch-tall then provide support. Peas produce tendrils to help them climb upwards. Erect wire netting, or push upright twiggy sticks in the pot to help them grow.
- Trim with scissors just above soil line when the seedlings reach 4-inches to grow better. It requires 11-13 weeks to harvest from sowing.
