Mr. Fothergill’s Asparagus Pea Seeds

3.99 “Price excl. VAT: 3.99

Neither asparagus nor a pea but it does have pods which are eaten like a ‘mangetout’ pea and does have a taste reminiscent of asparagus!

Easy to grow producing numerous winged pods which should be picked at about 2.5cm (1in) long and steamed or sautéed whole.

35 seeds.

Outdoors: sow thinly, April-June where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1″) deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Provide cloche protection or delay sowing if soil is still cold. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 45cm (18″) apart. Water well until plants are established. Two or three sowings will provide a successional crop.
