Peas like cool weather, but it is important not to sow them in the open ground too early so that frosts do not damage the crop.

How to sow peas

It is better to sow peas in the same garden beds where potatoes, cabbage, pumpkin, tomatoes, or cucumbers grew last year.

Well-drained, fertile soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH is ideal for the plant.

Before sowing, the seeds should be soaked in water for several hours, and the soil should be well dug up and loosened with fertilizer.

The holes for the seeds should be about 3 cm deep and spaced 8-10 cm apart.

In the future, do not forget to regularly water and, if necessary, fertilize the plants with nitrogen and potassium to get a bountiful harvest in 2-3 months.
