Description
Round (First Early) Pea Meteor has a neat, dwarf habit producing an abundance of small but well-filled pods. Very good winter hardiness, even in exposed areas as a an autumn variety. Pea Meteor is better flavoured than the old variety Feltham First and ideal for that first dish of the season.


1 packet (250 pea seeds) (24316)

Sowing
Direct sow peas outdoors from March to June, once the soil as warmed. In mild areas, some hardy, early maturing cultivars may be sown in late autumn for overwintering. Choose a weed-free position on moist, fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow pea seed in flat bottomed drills at a distance of 5cm (2") apart, and 4cm (1 1/2") deep. Allow a distance of 75cm (30") between rows. For successional crops, sow peas every 10 days.
More Info
Support pea plants with twiggy sticks, wire or netting as they grow, and use fine netting to protect pea crops from birds and pea moth damage. When growing peas, regular and thorough watering especially when in flower will improve crop yields. Harvest peas around 14 weeks after sowing when the pods have swollen. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.
