Presprouting Sugar Snap Peas is a important step to growing big Sugar Snap Pea plants.  By doing this you’ll be sure that the seeds won’t rot before they sprout under the soil (due to temperature).  It also guarantees that you won’t be wasting your time planting some seeds that might not even sprout at all causing you to wait and fall back in the garden season schedule.

Once they sprout then plant then as usual in your garden bed or ground. I also recommend a good inoculant (that’s the one we use) on your peas when planting.

  • I LOVE all your gardening and farm posts, because they are seriously SO helpful! BUT, I always get so jealous!! I can’t have a garden because the deer here just eat everything. I’m going to have to keep living vicariously through you, girlfriend! However, should the day come I can ever have a garden, I have all these posts bookmarked! 😉 Cheers and thanks for all the great 411!!

    • Aww thanks Cheyanne! I hope one day you’ll have the garden of your dreams! Have you thought about putting up a fence? I know it’s hard work but if you put up a tall fence, it will keep the deer out.. that’s what we do Upstate with the many deer that live on our land! Good luck! 🙂
