Growing peas in pots is a fantastic option for gardeners with limited space. Even if you live in a small apartment, space-saving container gardens can produce enough peas to feed your whole family. In this short Youtube video, you will learn how to make your own tiny pea crop using a few simple materials. Follow these simple steps and you can be enjoying fresh peas in only 58 days.
1.Fill a large plastic planting pot with a nice seed starter soil from your local garden supply store.
2.Place a bamboo teepee trellis in the pot so that the peas will have something to grow up.
3.Using your index finger, push holes in the dirt all around the outside of the teepee trellis.
4.Directly plant your pea seeds in the holes and cover them with dirt.
5.Water your pea pot so that the soil remains moist at all times. Take care not to over-water them.
Because peas are a cool season crop, it’s best to start your pea pot in late winter for a spring harvest or later summer for a fall harvest. As your peas begin to sprout, train them to grow up the teepee trellis by moving their tendrils in the right direction. Eat your peas as soon as you pick them for the most delicious taste.
