The Living Seed Company -A dwarf variety of garden pea that needs no staking, is named after the late 19th century plant breeder Thomas Laxton. Developed to be wilt resistant and sweeter than other peas available at the time. This old time stand by is still impressing us with its large sweet shelling peas (up to 9 in pod!).
We love eating them straight off the vine in the morning for breakfast, just like I did growing up in my grandparent's garden! The dark high quality peas are a delight fresh tossed into salads, lightly steamed as a side, or tossed in at the end of fried rice or a stir fry. Blanch and freeze to keep a bit of early summer in you ice box!
Instructions - Peas thrive in cool weather. Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Double rows of peas can be planted on each side of a trellis.
Our family tends to not trellis these and just space them a little closer together to support themselves.
