The gutter peas in the cold frame where getting huge (around 2 inches in length) so I had no choice but to plant them out into their final position. The guttering idea didn’t work out ‘quite’ the way I thought it would. The peas were basically stuck in it and I had to disturb them somewhat in order to get them out (thus negating the whole reason why I used the guttering in the first place – doh!). But they’ve been in the ground for four days now and they’re doing well. They’re even starting to scramble up the pea sticks. So I guess you could say that the experiment was a success. I’ve re-planted the guttering with more peas for a second row in May.
