Our expert associate, graduate engineer Vladimir Milutinović, explained to us how best to do spring sowing of peas, why this culture needs support, how it is maintained during the year and whether it is demanding when it comes to soil type and irrigation.

Never plant these plant species together

If you decide to sow leguminous peas, very high varieties, it is important to provide support for it before sowing. It will allow the pea to be attached to the base with tendrils so that it can later straighten the tree and bring an abundance of pods and fruits. You can make this kind of support easily, with the help of two or three trees in the shape of a stake and with a little rope.

Sugar peas can grow up to a meter high, but it does not have a large mass, so it can easily be grown with rope support. In addition, you can have different shapes of nets that you tighten, metal constructions, or ready-made, prepared supports.

These fungal diseases cause great damage to peas

Sugar pea is a plant that requires a lot of moisture. This means that if you want to grow this crop in the garden, you must provide it with quality watering, not only during the periods of the year when there is no rain, but also when the humidity is lower. When it comes to soil, peas grow well on those that do not have a large amount of nutrients, so by adding compost or mineral fertilizers, the plant is very easily and quickly fed.

Maintaining peas throughout the year comes down to one or two hoeing. However, it is important to know that this plant can be partially bound. This means that the plant, when it starts to grow, you should tie it with a rope in order to direct it in that way and prevent the whole bed from falling. After that, the peas will successively bear fruit that you can harvest on several occasions. Of course you can also save some pods for seed for next year.
