General Sugar Snap Growing Tips

Position:

Your peas will require a sunny, position with well-drained but rich soil. Ideally, the ground would be dug and manured the autumn before sowing, but if you have good garden soil, a thin dressing of good garden compost just before sowing is adequate.

Sowing:

Cascadia Sugar Snap Peas are a variety that is best sown in the spring. For best results wait until the soil has warmed up, usually from around the middle of March - June, depending where you live. Covering the area to be sown during the early Spring will help warm up the soil, and may enable you to bring forward sowing by a couple of weeks.

Peas grow fast, and the plants will not crop all season, so it is best to make successive sowings every 4 weeks. Very early sowings of peas will benefit from protection from both the weather and mice on the look out for food - pea seeds being a favourite!

Starting Pea Seeds Indoors: To grow an early crop many people sow seeds in a length of gutter. Place in a greenhouse or cold frame. The plants can be planted out into the garden once the seedlings have established and the weather is warmer, by gently sliding the pea seedlings into it.

Sowing Direct: You will get best results from pea seeds by sowing direct into the growing position. However if you sow too early into cold or wet conditions the seeds will rot. It is best to wait a few weeks to enable the soil to warm up if direct sowing, rather than rush and lose your crop.

Sow seed in a single row 5 to 10cm (2 to 4in) apart, ensuring there is enough space for plant supports. Make a single V-shaped drill, 5cm (2in) deep, water the base of the drill and sow the peas. A second row can be added, as long as it’s 30cm (12in) away from the first drill. Backfill over the seed and water your peas well after sowing, and then leave them - except in very dry weather - until they flower, when they should have a really good soak to encourage good pod formation. Keep them weeded until well established.
