Growing peasfor the first Time this year on my new allotment do I nip out the growing tip as with sweet peas? Also after a bit of a disaster with my runner beans is it too soon to plant a piece in the West Midlands? Any advice gratefully received as I am very new to vegetables
At planting out time we leave the rolls on, they rot away easily underground. They're usually already halfway there by that time 😄.
These were sown approx 14 days ago...
He's tried direct sowing outdoors before but the plants took ages to get going, even when using a cloche to raise soil temps. You might have more success further south.
He's growing "Alderman" and "early onward" this year.
Oh, and he doesn't pinch them out.
Good luck with your new allotment, hope you have a productive first year 👍🌱🌱🌱.
They are under fleece to stop pigeons stripping them and so far so good but I do feel a fool just hoping they will be ok
