Pea Meteor is a superb dwarf variety that is ideal for exposed plots and container growing due to its compact habit.
Meteor is a "Round seeded" variety and is winter hardy, although some protection is beneficial. It will stand frost and produce a crop early in the season, so can be sown in November to mature from late May.
February and March sowings are best made undercover.
