This self-supporting dwarf pea requires no staking. It produces high yields of sweet, tender shelling pods that grow at the top of bush and are easy to pick.
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Work in lime and Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone before planting. Sow into damp soil direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing.
For best results begin applying Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Plant Food when flower buds form. Novella does not require trellis to grow on, but a low support (to 1m) may be beneficial. Pick young peas regularly for maximum yield and flavour. Protect from snails and slugs.
Great companion plant for beans, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, lettuce and radish. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease. At end of harvest, dig spent plants into the soil to add extra organic nitrogen.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
