How do you plant a pea plant?
- For improved germination, soak peas overnight in water before planting.
- Plant seeds 1 inch deep (slightly deeper if soil tends to dry out quickly) and about 2 inches apart. Plant in rows spaced 12–24 inches apart.
- Poke in any seeds that get washed out of the soil.
Simply so, how tall do peas grow?
One may also ask, how long do pea plants produce? Main season peas usually take between 60 and 70 days from planting to eating. Good peas for later in the season are peas that can take some high temperatures and keep performing. These are the best varieties for planting in late spring. They typically take between 70 and 80 days to mature.
In respect to this, do peas need to climb?
Climbing peas may reach 6 to 8 feet tall and they need a sturdy trellis. Peas climb with 1" tendrils that they wrap around anything that's less than about a quarter inch. String, twine, trellis netting or wire mesh with a grid no less than 1" square, all work well.
How many pods does a pea plant produce?
In the past I get about 3 peas per pod and about 5 pods per plant that = about 15 peas per plant.
