When to sow
When to Sow Nairobi Snap Pea Seeds
July to September
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, then add some net support for plants to climb and hold the crop.
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.
Pick whilst pods still snap easily, add to stir fries or eat raw in a salad.
