That's the way I do it, but little & often. I sow about a 4' row every 2 weeks or so.

Peas freeze well, but mange tout go a bit soggy and are not so good in the old stir fries when frozen.

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Im doing even more Rows this yr , What spacing do you use between rows as can see they need lots room?

Cheers MW.

They usually say you sow then as far apart as their final height  ::)

But what advice does your packet give?

I did grow one row last yr and they got to about 4ft tall , so would that mean 2ft either side? i hope so.

2ft between rows is for the dwarf peas that grow 2.. 2ft6in tall..if yours grow to 4ft IMO they would need to be farther apart.

what about deterring flies etc so the cursed maggots do not wriggle out when you shell them!

I grew early onward last yr (as i am this yr) and didnt have a problem at all. Think they where ready before the moths. Just netted against pidgeons which went over the supports and where pegged down.
