Planting Spring Peas in Containers: Get Them Out Early!
Posted by Gary Pilarchik on
by Gary Pilarchik (The Rusted Garden) Peas love the cold and can handle the morning frost. What they don't like is prolonged wet, cold, soggy, soil. It often leads to their death. A bit less dramatically said... they mold, rot and of course don't germinate.

But... container plantings can help you start peas and other vegetables a few weeks early with more success. Why? Containers drain better and warm faster than spring earth...
