Well having been overwhelmed with the choice of varieties kindly suggested, I now have some Hurst Green Shaft pea seeds (they'd arrived at the association hut) and am spending time this afternoon making some (lots?) of Richy's paper pots. (I'm still making my mind up about the second variety... perhaps Twinkle... or Meteor... or Little Marvel ... or ... or .... nooooooooo!!! too much choice :roll: )
The chap at the hut suggested it might be worth planting 2-3 seeds per pot (it's quite a big old can which I'm using) and then planting them out in bunches. Does that sound ok? I assume in that case, I should space them a bit further apart than the usual 2" per individual plant.
Once I've sowed my seeds into the pots, will they be hardy enough to go straight out into a mini greenhouse in the back yard, or do I need to tell them to share the dining table with the chitting spuds?
