Is it possible to save my dried up peas for next year's seed?  If so, will  they come true and should I do anything like put them in the fridge or freezer?

BobTheGardener

Yes, just let them dry inside their pods (best left on the plants) and once completely dry just put them in a paper bag and store somewhere cool-ish (like a drawer in a shed.)  If others around you are also growing peas then they might not all come true, but most will.

Thank you for the prompt response. It sounds very easy, which is good 'cos I make loads of mistakes. Must remember to write what they are on thebag!

Oh dear, I don't know what they are. I bought them at a seed day in January. They were in a brown envelope. I think they are called  'Perfection'.

I don't think it'll matter if you forget to label the bag, as unless someone can correct me only pea seeds look like pea seeds. Sweet pea seeds look different
