kent blues ... :(
« on: May 14, 2020, 18:01 »
For the last 5 years or so I've grown Kent blue peas which I believe someone on here gave me or they were part of a seed circle. I have loved these peas not sweet like most of the new ones, great in a stir fry and just beautiful flowers to look at.

I don't know what I did wrong with seed saving this year but not a single one has come up. I thought maybe the rats/voles had them but the soil is undisturbed and the row of peas next to them sown on the same day has emerged perfectly. Any thoughts on how I saved these wrongly?

If anyone is still growing them would they be able to save me a couple for next year?

Well looks like I miss labelled the seed tray and mixed them up with sugar snaps. :)

They are just the most beautiful peas!!

It was me, Ema and I've had a cracking early crop out of the greenhouse, before the tomatoes took over!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

Thank you DD! They are such a pleasure to grow!
