Pea Telephone


Called the telephone pea because of the 6ft height it can grow to, akin to a telephone pole, this heirloom pea was around in the 1880s. We think it’s a cracker, it produces loads of large pods containing 8-10 tender and sweet peas.

Average 50 seeds.

Sowing info

If you don’t have a problem with mice or pigeons direct sow peas outdoors from March to June, once the soil as warmed. Alternatively, sow seeds in lengths of drainpipe filled with peat free compost. Once plants are around 20cm tall, they can be slid down the drainpipe into their final position with minimal disturbance. Due to their ability to withstand cold temperatures, peas can be overwintered in the drainpipe in the greenhouse before planting out in early spring.

Growing info

Plants will require support and so are perfect for growing over arches where it’s easier to harvest the top section of the plant. May require netting if pigeons are a problem for you. Regular harvesting will encourage the plant to continue producing loads of peas. Harvest before peas swell in pods.
