Peas make their best growth during cool weather and can be planted when the soil temperature is 45°F. Successive plantings will produce peas over a longer period. Seeds should be planted 1 inch deep, 2 inches apart, with rows close together for best yields. Inoculation with nitrogen should be used for maximum yields. Taller varieties should be trained on a trellis or fence to increase crops. A double row can then be planted 6 inches apart with the support between the rows. Generous 2 oz. packets will plant a 10 to 15 foot row, 1/2 lb. will plant 40 to 60 feet. Average seed count is 125 seeds per ounce.
