Sweet Pea Seed Planting Information:

Sweet peas like cool weather and can be grown anywhere as long as you have composted soil. Peas can be grown in spring and fall. Plant seeds every 3 to 4 weeks for continuous harvest. Plant your seeds outdoors. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting done in August, September, and October. Most varieties require stakes, trellises, or other support for the vines to climb. Plants can grow 1 to 6 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep the soil consistently moist. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Pick the sweet peas regularly to promote growth of new pods. They should be harvested when pods are fully rounded.
