Garden Tip

Keywords: Fabaceae (Pea family)

Plant your peas on George Washington's birthday! Snow, snap, shelling and sweet peas for flowers can all be sowed outside now. Don't forget to get a packet of Rhizobia bacteria inoculant to help your pea plants make their own nitrogen fertilizer from the soil. Inoculant can be purchased at nurseries where seeds are sold. You can also use the inoculant when you sow bean seeds in June. Read all about growing perfect peas online: Growing Green Peas in Home Gardens, and Ensure Your Bounty of Peas.
