Peas' and possibly more Peas'

Postby Relentless » Jun 29th, 2017, 7:39 pm

Okay, so my sugar snap peas will soon be done.
Has anyone ever tried a second planting, say in the middle of July?
Too hot?
I really want to give it a try just to see for myself...
And even if they are ready in mid September......so what...

Please share your experience if you have tried this.
Many thanks in advance! :up:

Hi, I recall that the type of pea that does ok in hot weather is "Wanda" but other than that I've got nothing to add.

Come into the Gardening Thread with questions like this, might get quicker answers? :130:

Hi, we always do a 2nd planting...ours up in Glenrosa are just about ready now, so will most likely do another plant in late July early August depending on the weather.. we don't get as many, but it is still nice to have fall peas. Good luck!

We didn't get as many peas either, I wondered if it was the late wet Spring and fewer pollinators?

Hey...... many Thanks for the input!
Mine are 6-7 feet tall right now and full of peas, the best crop ever!
I was thinking to re-plant in another 2 weeks when they are totally done, and will try it, even if the yield is only half.
I plant mine in potting soil, use Miracle grow every week, seems to work really well.
95% came up this this, I never had that before, when I just planted in dirt.
