Frequently Asked Questions About Pea Seeds
How long does it take to grow peas?
The timeline is different for each variety, but they usually take about two months to grow. Some varieties need almost three months to fully mature.
How do you start peas from a seed?
For best results, soak the peas in water overnight, then plant them directly in the soil in your garden. Spring is the best time of the year to grow peas because they don't do well in hot temperatures.
Do you have to soak pea seeds before planting?
If you want your peas to sprout more quickly, you can soak them in water before planting. Just make sure you don't soak them for more than twenty-four hours, or the seeds will be unusable.
Do peas need full sun?
Peas do well in direct sunlight. Make sure you plant them in an area of your garden where they'll receive about eight hours of sunlight a day.
Can you grow peas in pots?
You can, but you'll get a higher yield if you grow your peas outside in the garden. If you grow your peas in a pot, they'll need more water and fertilization than peas grown in the soil.
How many peas will one plant produce?
You can get anywhere from two to six pounds of peas per row in your garden.
