How to Grow Thomas Laxton Peas

When to Plant Pea Seeds

Plant your Pea Seeds outside 4-6 weeks before the average last frost for your area. Make sure that the soil is warmer than 45 degrees.

Where to Plant Pea Seeds

Choose an open, weed-free site in full sun. Grow your peas in moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Peas prefer cool, damp weather but avoid working in overly wet soil as this will compact and your peas may rot. Try to dig plenty of well-rotted compost into the soil several weeks before sowing to improve soil fertility and help retain moisture.

How to Plant Pea Seeds

Plant your pea seeds about 1 inch deep in full sun. Allow 6 inches between each pea seed. Keep an eye on your seeds for a few days - if they wash out of the soil, poke them back in with a pen, twig, etc.

How to Harvest Peas

Grab the vine with one hand and pick the peas off with the other hand to avoid damaging the vines. Harvest when the peas are tender and the pods are developed.

*The more peas you pick, the more peas the plant will produce!
