Peas contain more protein than any other vegetable. They also contain important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, and iron.
You’ll need to start with plants rather than seeds. There are many garden centers that carry a wide variety of pea plants, including dwarf and bush varieties that work well in hanging baskets.
Choose a basket at least 12 inches deep and 20 inches across to give the plants plenty of room for roots. Line the basket with sphagnum moss and fill it with potting soil.
Plant up to five plants in the basket, spacing them evenly around the inside edge. Water well and set it out in the full sun.
Peas require lots of nitrogen, so fertilize every week or two with a high-nitrogen fertilizer like fish emulsion or seaweed extract.And water whenever the soil starts to dry out about an inch below the surface.
If it gets hot where you live, you may want to move your peas into part shade during the hottest part of the day; this will help prevent flower drops and keep your peas producing longer.
