Variety: Purple Podded
Sown indoors: 3rd June 2013
First Seedling: 9th June 2013
Germination: 6 days
Newly emerged and 2 day old seedlings:
At 5 days old, these seedlings are growing at a steady pace
7 days old now and already some of the seedlings have reached 5 to 6 inches in height. I’ve potted all these on now and fastened them to plant stakes
At 2.5 weeks old, the seedlings have been in pots for a week now and are a good foot tall. I need to find them a permanent space outside.
Now 6 weeks old, the plants have reached the height of the greenhouse, I have nipped out the growing tips, the first flowers are opening and we even have the first pod starting to grow:
Sadly despite what appeared to be a good start, these plants didn’t really amount to much in the way of pea pods, although we had a good number of flowers. Today, as part of my autumn tidy up, I took the decision to compost the plants and will try again next year.
