How to Grow
Sow in medium to large outdoor container as soon as the soil can be worked at indicated spacing. Peas require fertile soil and plenty of water. Keep soil moist but not wet. Dwarf peas do not require staking, this variety only reaches 12" in height. Harvest when pods are full, and shell. Take care not to let the peas over ripen, they become bitter if left on the vine too long.
