Spring is a great time to plant all kinds of peas. Peas to eat or colourful flowers to pick - you can grow them all from seed.
Where do peas come from?
Frozen peas come in a bag, of course. But all peas actually come from pods off a plant. And that plant grows from a pea - because a pea is actually a seed!
The yummiest pea of all
is one you picked just a second ago!
Some peas we can eat pod and all!
These peas are called snowpeas or sugarsnap peas. Sow some seeds every week or two, and you’ll be picking them all summer long. Grow plenty for your lunchbox and to share with your friends.
If you love picking flowers, grow some sweet peas.
They grow from seeds like any other pea plant, but instead of peas to eat we get colourful flowers for picking. They smell great too! Look on www.yates.co.nz to see how many different colours you can grow.
Sow some sweet pea seeds this
spring and you’ll be picking bunches of flowers in summer!
