Peas, whether sugar snap, snow, or shelling varieties, are a nutrient-rich addition to your diet, packed with vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibre.
Their nitrogen-fixing properties enhance soil fertility, benefiting neighbouring plants and promoting a healthier garden ecosystem.
Furthermore, peas are relatively easy to grow, making them an ideal choice for gardeners of all levels. Their climbing nature also makes them excellent for vertical gardening, maximizing space utilization.
Beyond the practical advantages, growing peas provides a unique and rewarding experience, as their delicate tendrils and vibrant flowers add aesthetic charm to the garden.
As a cool-season crop, peas can be planted early in the spring or late in the summer, offering gardeners the opportunity to enjoy multiple harvests throughout the year.
