3 Tips for Growing Peas and Beans
1. Healthy Soil and Fertilising
- Peas and beans both prefer well drained, moist soils, with plenty of organic matter and a soil pH 6.0-7.5.
- You can make your own potting mix like I do, or improve your soil with compost and worm castings if you have them. I also add minerals and mulch. Click here for tips on preparing your soil for planting.
- Every couple of weeks apply a liquid fertiliser such as seaweed, fish emulsion or diluted worm casting concentrate to boost growth.
