Pea - Petit Pois Linnet
This variety produces masses of double pods containing high quality, small 'petit pois' peas with outstanding flavour. It is a compact early variety and the plants show resistance to pea wilt and downy mildew, which is particularly helpful in wet summers.
Sow outdoors from March to June where they are to crop, in flat drills 15cm wide and 5cm deep, in well-cultivated, fertile soil. Sow in a zig-zag fashion along the drill, allowing 5cm between seeds. Fill the drill with fine soil and firm down gently. Allow 60cm between rows. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 10-18 days. Harvest from May to September.
