Hi Vivienne, that's one of good old Geoff Hamilton's tips.
No drainage holes needed - the compost will be shallow and will dry out quite quickly by itself, so keep an eye on that. Plant peas 2" apart. Transplant when they are about 3 inches tall, weather permitting. I don't bother hardening off - too much chance of an accident when carrying a gutter full of them in and out! Instead, cover them with newspaper or fleece once they are transplanted, if frost is forecast overnight.
