As each new season approaches gardeners are on the receiving end of a barrage of enticing offers and promises of easy-to-grow lush plantings for our gardens. The results are not usually as promised. However, this article from a seed company has some useful information about growing peas. It includes descriptions of three types of peas; snow, shelling, and snap. It also has a helpful explanation of how to use the days to maturity and average first freeze dates to calculate ideal dates for planting.
In the Edible Landscape we are interested in comparing seeds sown in the fall with spring peas.
