Gardening doesn’t have to be complicated, especially when you start with something as straightforward and rewarding as growing peas.

These little green gems are more than just a versatile veggie for your dinners – they’re a gateway into the gardening world for novices and a reliable crop for the seasoned planter.

So, if you’re looking to get started in the gardening world or just want to add a fail-safe crop to your portfolio, peas are the way to go. Here’s how to grow them.

Choosing Your Pea Variety

Before you start dreaming about heaps of peas on your plate, you’ll first need to pick a type.

From sugar snap peas – perfect for those who love a good crunch – to snow peas, ideal for stir-fries, or garden peas, there’s a variety for every palate and purpose.

Just be sure to consider your climate and cooking habits when choosing, as some varieties thrive in cooler weather while others are more tolerant of warmth.

Planting Your Peas

Peas aren’t very picky, but they do have their preferences. They love cool weather, so you should plan to plant them in early spring or even late winter if you’re in a milder climate.
