Pea - Onward
This is one of our favourite maincrop varieties which always produces a good crop. It is a high yielding, heavy cropping variety producing upto 8 peas per pod.
Sow the seed from April onwards when the soil is warm. Make a drill about 12-15cm wide and 4-5cm deep, sow seeds 5cm apart throughout the drill, water and then fill in. Support as seedlings appear. The plant grows to the height of 60cm. Regular watering is essential once the plants are in flower and pod. As well as sowing direct, they can also be sown in old guttering in the greenhouse for hardening off, and planting out to get an earlier crop. It is ideal for successional crops and germinates at 5 - 25C.
