Chick Pea Sowing

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,810

I have been given some chick peas still in their pods

I want to save them and see if I can grow some on next season

? Do I shell them now or leave until pod goes dry / black

? Do I have to start in a pot at home  etc etc etc

Hope you can help friends

Everyone is just trying to be Happy.....So lets help Them.

    Newboy2, ive never grown them, but plan to image

    How green are your pods? If they are very fresh, i would leave them to dry before shelling and storing, as most things dont store well in shells.

    From watching QI, it seems kitty litter can aid drying! You could lay a few on some if you have any image

    I intend to start mine in an unheated greenhouse just like normal peas image

    Feel free to ignore my advice as i have no practical experience - yetimage
