Hi - I usually grow peas in containers and have good success and this year am up for trying some new varieties - and putting them in pots where I have wall trellises they can twine onto.  Anyone feel like suggesting a good, sweet variety and a good, sweet supplier?  I don't mind when they crop, really, I just don't want to get to Autumn without having sat in the sun eating pea pods straight off the plant :)  Really dwarf varieties probably not good for this experiment as I'd need something at least 2 - 3 ft tall at the least.  Thanks!

    Some tall peas listed here, scroll down the page.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Petit pois calibre is my favourite. I used to get it from DtBrowns/Mr fothergills but they were out of stock of it this year when I went to buy more.
