Pea Seeds - Champion of England

“Apparently ‘Champion of England’ was sold by the farmer that bred it for a pot of beer on a Sunday morning, finally being introduced in 1846. Looking back, I bet the farmer kicked himself for only getting one beer for this variety, as it has so many benefits which are still appreciated today. The tall and sturdy plants will grow between 5-8' tall, meaning you will get lots of peas from a small footprint of earth, ideal for a small garden. The large pods contain 7-10 very sweet peas, which means its one of my favourite peas and is certainly ‘Champion of England’ in my eyes.” Sow March-late June. Harvest July-September.

Sow March-late June on ground which has been well manured during the previous autumn or winter. Draw out flat drills 15-20cm (6-8") wide, 5-7.5cm (2-3") deep, and 1.5m (5') apart. Sow about 20 seeds per 30cm (12"), spacing them 5-7.5cm (2-3") apart each way.  As soon as two pairs of leaves have opened support with canes and use the hoe to keep weeds down and the soil open. Sowing to cropping: 14-16 weeks.
