Want to try peas this year

Hi all, I want to try growing peas this year. How tall of a string trellis is required an how far apart should the strings be? Thanks

Depends on your variety.  The seed packet should give you both the height and the distance between rows.

I plant them rather tight, two rows four inches apart with each plant 2 inches apart.  My vertical strings are about 6 inches apart with a total run of 6 feet.  These are snow peas, not the shucking kind.

Although peas can be trellised I usually don't fine the vines go very far. Short 4ft fences or the more traditional assemblage of 2ft twigs seem to do ok. Most pea recommendations say 2-3 inches apart for growing, so your support should likewise be <6"gaps.

Many of the snow peas come as determinant varieties with vines of less than 18". While distributors say no trellis is necessary I've had limited success thees last 2 years. Home Depot and other garden centers sell low ornamental folding fence for about $6 per 10 ft. section. I'm going to try this for my fall planting. Less work for the lazy guy and reuseable.
