  • Prolific Cropping
  • Large Pods

<p>A mid season variety that is noted for its extremely heavy crop of large, even, well-filled pods.  This rich green pea, which is tender and sweet, has been the home garden favourite for many generations. Greenfeast is a shelling variety that has best flavour if harvested as soon as pods are plump and well filled.</p>

 

How to grow

Position

Full sun

How

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Work in lime and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Sow into damp soil direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing.

Care

For best results begin applying Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food when flower buds form. Greenfeast does not require a trellis to climb on, but a low support (to 1m) may be beneficial. Pick young peas regularly for maximum yield and flavour.  Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, lettuce and radish. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease. At end of harvest, dig spent plants into the soil to add extra organic nitrogen.
