Pea Kelvedon Wonder(RHS Award of Garden Merit)

Description

RHS Award

Kelvedon Wonder is a very popular variety of pea. They are highly suited to successional sowing. This variety produces heavy crops of excellent flavoured small peas. Grows to a height of approximately 45cm (18").

Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.

When to Sow Kelvedon Wonder Pea Seeds

March to July

Where to Sow

Prepare a flat bottom drill 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm, (4in) wide.

What to do next

Space seeds 5cm (2in) apart throughout the drill allowing 60cm (24in) between the drills, then cover over with soil and gently tamp down with the back of a rake. It is advisable to give some net protection against birds, once seedlings start to grow. As dwarf, plants usually hold each other up and will not require any net support. Alternatively very early spring sowings can be made in February or March into a length of plastic gutter or modular cells under glass and then planted out against wires. Slide contents of gutter into a shallow drill made in the plot or space modular plants 10-15cm(4-6in) apart once hardened off.

Maturity

June to September

Handy Tip

Being dwarf, the plants are self supporting and ideal for growing in exposed areas or containers.

Nutritional Values

A good source of Pro-Vitamin A and Vitamins C, B1 and folic acid.
