Tips for Planting Organic Pod Peas
Heirloom organic peas love rich, sandy well drained loam that is slightly alkaline.
Remember not to plant your peas in cold wet soil or they will rot and never geminate. Normally, you are safe to plant pea seeds about 2-3 weeks before your last frost in well drained soil or raised rows/beds.
IF you have never had peas or other legumes growing in your soil then inoculating them will be very important for good germination.
Most heirloom pea varieties benefit from a trellis. This can be string, old tomato cages, brush, bamboo....just use your imagination. We tell people to use a tall type of oat to trellis you peas on. These organic oats can be tilled under later to add biomass to your soil and give good soil structure.
Plant peas in the early spring and in the late fall. Remember, peas do not like hot weather.
The seeds arrived in Damascus Maryland this morning! Thanks so much for your prompt service and for helping my friend from Dakar Senegal receive them in time to return home on Friday. I am so happy to know of your company!John
I think your service is great, your selection is amazing, and your prices do not break the bank! So I am looking forward to doing business with you in the future.Marianna
I love what you are doing! I think it is wonderful that more people are interested, wish they never gave up....because our food supply is so awful now. I have been fighting against GMO's and will continue. It is the only way we will avoid...Antonia

Thanks for the speedy delivery. The wheat has been planted and the majority has taken hold... already 4" high and its only been planted for 9 days :) I can't wait to plant the other stuff next spring. I told others about your companySam
Thanks. The marigold seeds i brought from you last year did very well and there is another fact I wanted to share with you, which is that the Kamut wheat did very well in my poorish soil that i did not fertilize for it!Rose
