Normally peas grow to the height of about 150cm. But also very low growing varieties, only 20cm high, exist. Also, very high varieties, growing to more than 200cm can be found. The low varieties require minimal support, some can be grown without any support. Higher varieties will need a net, rod, etc. to grow on. 

How to Grow

Peas can be sown directly in the garden. Many varieties of peas can withstand a low soil temperature. Sow the peas about 3cm deep. If you sow in the summer or when it's warmer, sow a bit deeper because the seeds need moisture. Sow the seeds with a spacing of about 5-8cm. Do not let the plants dry out. Peas are easily affected by mildew. Peas can also be sown in pots, for later transplant. Do not sow too early, to avoid lanky and high plants. Peas grow fast.
