The last couple of years have been frustrating from a pea harvest perspective. Our crop has been destroyed largely as a result of being eaten, but I suspect late frosts have also played their part too.
So this year I’m trying to grow peas in pots. After sowing I moved the pots inside our polytunnel to protect from slugs and snails. The pots are standing in trays – which I will keep topped up with water to function like a moat. Slugs and snails will need to be able to swim.
