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 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!
