The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your Sugar Snap Peas!
In the spring, plant sugar snap peas as soon as you can prepare the soil. Sugar snap peas are a cool-season vegetable and can tolerate light frosts even when the plants are small. In the fall, plant sugar snap peas in the last 8 to 10 weeks before the first expected frost to guarantee a plentiful harvest. Just note that most peas won't tolerate weather above 75 degrees F.
How to Sugar Snap Peas from Seed!
# 1 | Plant the seeds 1 to 1½ inches deep and 1 inch apart in single or double rows. Allow 18 to 24 inches between single or pairs of rows. Allow 8 to 10 inches between double rows in pairs
#2 | Before they bloom, pea plants need to be kept moist but not wet; after blooming, slightly increase the watering.
#3 | Germination should occur in 7-14 days.
#4 | As the vines begin growing, a trellis will support the sugar snap peas climbing habit; any kind of support 5-6' tall should be sufficient
