Hi, I just recently moved into a house with an established vegie garden and there are snow peas in there. I was wondering whether to remove them now and sow next year or keep them for a second year as they are? thanks.

Snow peas should grow well through the winter so if they are fairly young plants then I would keep them. If they've already finished podding then rip them out.

Thanks for the tip! The plants have finished poddong so I'm going to get rid of them. Is there anything I can plant to make use of the trelise that is still there?

I know it's not ideal to plant the same thing in the same spot repeatedly because of pests building up in the soil, but you could put in some more snowpeas for this season, maybe digging in a bit of compost first.
