Talkback: Mangetout and sugar snap peas

im doing the oppesite im growing early onwards peas and dwarf french bean any advice


  • anyone know a way to get rid of lambstail,it looks like asparagus when it comes through the soil and if you dig it,then it breaks and spreads.
  • While browsing the seeds in my local garden centre earlier today I found a variety of sugarsnap peas that can be eaten at almost any stage - when young, just the pods like mangetout, a little further on and a sugarsnap eat everything pea and later (or those that get left too long!) just shell for the peas. Seems like a good option if you can't guarentee regular picking. Of course I can't remember the name so I am not really that much help am I!! Maybe this is a quality the RHS could assess...
  • I'm so pleased the National Trust has released land for allotments. Perhaps other owners of large areas might consider doing the same. It would bring them in another income. All it needs is to have a water supply, have access and parking and to be fenced securely.
  • Please advise - I'm new to grow your own -how do I grow mange tout?
  • Hi
    I have mange tout and pea (bought as plug plants) in large troughs growing up their stakes and onto my pergola with sweet peas and clemetis. They are just starting to flower. I have never done these before but looking forward to seeing "anything" growing !
  • my peas look like this: fat peas inside a flat pod. is it too early or too late to pick them?
  • most of my peas are rotten but some ofthem are ok.
