On our allotments a lot of people are complaining of peas that have not grown to their full height and have given poor crops.
I sowed Greenshaft as usual this year and they have only reached eighteen inches in height on all four rows and given about six pounds in weight
Has anybody else suffered the same
As a usually successful sweet pea grower, mine have performed very poorly this year after a good start. No more than 4ft, few flowers, some mildew and aphids.
I can only put it down to the hot and dry weather we've had in the south-east as I usually get a good display
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I agree, peas hate drought and many parts of the UK have been incredibly dry this year.
