Tall Telephone Peas

I'm in zone 8a, when should I plant my peas so I miss the hot weather? Can I start them inside now to get a jump on the heat?

I'm able to start in about two weeks outside, but it's an entirely different climate here.

RE: Tall Telephone Peas

when is your frost date.
zone does not help determine planting dates
zone only tells you how cold it will get in winter.

RE: Tall Telephone Peas

You should probably get a first sowing in now. Don't know what "West Central Texas" is ... but if you're west of IH-35 and south of Waco/Temple/Belton I'd sow now and every two weeks for the next few weeks. Peas can handle a light frost, which you'll still get and if you get a deep freeze, you'll still have seed left to keep sowing. I've never transplanted peas, I've only direct sowed.

RE: Tall Telephone Peas

Think I need to change my West Central Texas to West TX since our move...only moved 40 miles but....

I'm about 4 hrs west of I-35 and about an hour or so north of I-10.
