How to Grow Sugar Snap Peas

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.

Germinating peas

This is our quick and easy method for presprouting peas. We’ve been doing this for the past many years with a successful sugar snap pea harvest twice a year.  

Directions:
Step 1:  Drop your peas in a bowl of water to get them wet.

Once they sprout then plant them 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.

Growing Peas

After the peas are germinated, then you can plant them straight into your garden beds or soil.   We dig a little trench in the soil and throw the peas in, usually about 3 inches apart.  Then we’ll cover them up, push down on the soil gently with our hands and then sprinkle them with water.  Here’s my walk through on how to plant peas!

Then you wait for the first one to pop through the soil which usually takes over a week.  It’s a exciting time where every day you will run to the garden to see the first one.   Once  the first one pops up the others will follow quickly.

And soon enough you’ll have pounds of sugar snap peas to pick and eat!
