Snow peas and Yates ‘Earlicrop Massey’ are ideal for growing in containers in small space areas or balconies. Snow peas require a trellis, while dwarf ‘Earlicrop Massey’ can grow without support.
Even the taller ‘dwarf’ peas, such as Greenfeast, will perform better if given some support otherwise they tend to flop on the ground where they’re more likely to pick up disease.
If you don’t have room for a trellis, the low growing Yates ‘Earlicrop Massey’ is ideal.
At the end of the season, dig the plants into the soil so that they can add valuable nitrogen.
Water regularly throughout the growing season, particularly in warmer weather. Try watering the soil or base of the plant to prevent fungal issues such as powdery mildew.
