white bloches on pea leaves

Hi I have planted peas in a large pot with canes and they are growing really well but have noticed white bloches/spots on the leaves.....can anybody help by telling me what it is and what I can do about it.

    If you've had any hailstorms recently they could be the culprit - I've got a similar thing on some plants and they appeared after hail

    I've got these on my mange tout, never really bother about it as the they're growing away well. Are your plants looking generally healthy?

    Could be pea leaf miners.  Take a leaf off and look closely to see if you can see a tiny green insect sandwiched between the top and bottom surfaces of the leaf - they eat it from the inside and often do so in ever-widening circles.  If it is that, there's not much you can do, but the good news is they don't really affect the crop.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
