Growing Peas

View the Peas page

I am having a lot of trouble with growing peas. I have corrugated raised garden beds filled with bags of garden soil (like Hortico Garden Soil) from Bunnings. The plants grow very well and give quite a few peas but then they start to go brown starting at the bottom of the plant and it travells up the stalk and leaves until they are all brown and dying. Any ideas?

If you leave any of the pods to dry up, the plant will stop producing and start to die off. You need to check that you are not missing even pods with one pea and remove them .
