Climbing Peas Telephone Pole! Probably the most popular variety of climbing pea. It produces well-filled pods with beautiful sweet flavour. A vigorous climbing pea (up to 2m), that produces a huge crop of large, sweet- flavoured pods over a long period and adapts to a wide range of climates. This shelling variety has best flavour if harvested as soon as pods are plump and well filled.

Plant Height: 2m

Soil should be well prepared with compost and/or aged manure prior to sowing.

Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6in) wide and 5cm (2in) deep. Pair seeds in a zig-zag fashion along the middle of the trench allowing 7.5cm (3in) between seeds. Fill in with soil and gently firm down.

Best sown into dark/damp soil where further water is not required until seedlings emerge. Where more than one row of peas is required allow 1m (3ft) between rows. Protect from birds with netting or by any other means, particularly during early growth. Train young seedlings up to trellis or support.

Keep well-watered and mulch to assist with water retention.

Further fertilising is not required as legumes produce their own nitrogen.
