PEA-GREENFEAST SHELLING-DWARF is a bush shelling pea that grows well in cooler months of Spring, Autumn and Winter. Produces 11cm pods full of sweet, juicy peas and can grow up to 90cm tall.  They like well drained, fertile soil but prefer slightly alkaline soil. Flowering is decreased with temps over 25C. Sow direct in a sunny position and water regularly. Easy for anyone to grow, even kids.
Greenfeast Shelling-Dwarf Peas are a popular and versatile vegetable that can be easily grown in a variety of climates. These peas are a great source of protein, fibre, and essential vitamins, and are often used in salads, soups, and stews.

Sow thinly in furrows 5cm deep, fill the trench and gently firm down. Seedlings will emerge after 8 – 10 days. Water regularly when sprouted. Pea seeds DO NOT like heavy soil.  Harvest around 65 to 70 days. No need to add fertiliser as legumes will produce their own nitrogen for growth. Good to grow in a bed after potatoes or tomatoes.

How to Grow Greenfeast Shelling-Dwarf Peas

  1.  Peas prefer cool temperatures and can be planted early in the spring or late in the summer.  Select a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day and has well-draining soil.
  2. Prepare the soil before planting.  Add compost or well-rotted manure to the soil to provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth.  Peas prefer a slightly acidic soil pH of 6.0 to 7.0.
  3. Plant seeds directly in the soil, 2-3 cm (1 inch) deep and 5-8 cm (2-3 inches) apart. If planting in rows, space rows 45-60 cm (18-24 inches) apart. Water the seeds well after planting.
  4. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water deeply once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions.
  5. Fertilise with a side dressing of nitrogen-rich fertiliser at the time of planting to give them a boost. Peas are nitrogen-fixing plants, which means they can create their own nitrogen. Only add extra nitrogen at time of sowing.
  6. Support the peas as they grow, to prevent them from falling over. Install trellises, stakes or other supports when the plants are 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) tall. This will also make harvesting easier.
  7. Harvest your Greenfeast Shelling-Dwarf Peas at roughly 60-70 days after planting. The pods should be plump and green, before they start to yellow. Harvest regularly to encourage continued production.
