Planting Tips for Heirloom Peas:

Heirloom peas like it cool, so you can plant them 3-4 weeks before your last frost date but besore the soil is well drained and raised in beds or rows.  Germination in these heirloom peas is as low as 45 degrees and it is often said that a cooler pea will be sweater.  Using soil inoculation will increase yields by boosting the available nitrogen in the soil.

For the highest yeildes of these delicous garden peas, make sure they have thin wire or string to climb.  This will give them more room to grow, thus collecting more sunshine and creating better yields.  Remember to continually pick the ripe pods as to encourage a longer harvest.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
