Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Pea Douce Provence is a compact growing variety that only reaches a height of 45cm so requires a little bit of support. Pea Douce Provence is a very early & reliable cropper with an excellent sweet taste.
It can be sown in Autumn/Winter (mid October November) and this will produce one of the earliest pea crops (early may onwards). Pea Douce Provence does overwinter well but will benefit from added protection in cold winters to protect new shoots.
It can be sown later (from February to July) to give good successional sowing and later crops (May to October). Water well when flowering and pick regularly to encourage further pods.
Pea Douce Provence makes an excellent variety for containers/pots.
