Plant seeds directly into the garden starting 3-5 weeks before average last frost date or as soon as the soil can be worked. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-70 degrees. It can take seed about 2 weeks to germinate at 50°F, less as the soil warms. For taller varieties, use crop supports such as a trellis or chicken wire to keep vines upright. Planting double rows of peas on each side of a trellis will result in a more productive harvest. For a fall crop, sow about 2 months before frost. Keep seeds well watered to encourage good germination.
