Quantity or Pot size (see 'Pot Sizes' tab below): 250 seeds approx
Tall variety producing high yields of flat pods which are eaten whole. Great in stir fries but for maximum goodness eat them raw. The tender young shoots and pretty purple flowers have a delicate pea flavour and can be added to salads.
Sow March to May in flat bottomed drills 5cm deep and 10cm wide.
Space seeds 5cm apart with 60cm between rows, then cover over with soil and gently tamp down with the back of a rake.
>Cover with netting to stop bird digging up the seed or pecking the seedlings. Provide some support for the plants to climb up. Their tendrils will need something to cling to. Twiggy sticks are best, netting should be avoided as it is a hazard to wildlife
Harvest July to August
