I ran out of space in the garden and planted my peas in a container this year. I actually meant to start seeds early but never got to it so cheated and bought plants at the local nursery. These are Snow Peas. Never tried growing Snow Peas before. I usually grow Sugar Snap Peas.

I've planted peas in containers in the past with really good results. Your plants look quite healthy and happy. The only challenge will be keeping the soil from drying out. Other than that, they're pretty easy.

They are not far from the house so keeping them watered should be quite easy. I plan to grow my pole beans in a pot this year also, only the pot is much bigger than the one with peas. In fact I am going to start my bean seeds today or tomorrow. And I have some pea seeds. GREEN ARROW garden peas. I know it is really late to start peas but I have another pot and nothing to loose by planting them.

I started my peas back in early april and are all flowering. It may be a little late for the peas, only because I expect this nice weather we have been having to only get warmer.

I think it is late, I usually start peas from seed, they are easy. But much earlier than this. But not organised this year. Still, I just planted the GREEN ARROW seeds in another pot right next to the one with the seedlings.

Fall peas are in pots also this year.

That's a lot of peas in a pot! Do you find that's too crowded? or do you thin them out?


 o
RE: Peas in a pot.

No, I wasn't planning on thinning. I think absolutely all the seeds came up.

Peas in the pots really growing well.

RE: Peas in a pot.

Don't be afraid to crowd peas - they love it. I grow my peas in a trench about 4 inches wide, and just spread seed throughout. They support each other as they grow.

Looks wonderful! I wanted to plant some this yr too, but I also ran out of room in my raised beds. I will have to try that next yr! Can you plant them now?

A little late to start in zone 6 but still not much to loose if you can get them planted.
