I can't see any way it would improve the yield of either.

If you keep taking the leaves off it won't last long. Plants can't live without leaves

Aubretia

Definitely not aubrieta


I don't recognise that, I should think it's an annual if all that growth has happened this year. What did you grow last year that might have seeded?

photo essential. I doubt if it's aubrieta. Ten times bigger is just too much and any aubrieta seeding last year wouldn't be enormous this year. 


Make your photo smaller, the site can't handle most original images, I reduce mine to 30%. Start from the camera icon

peas are often very hard and scarification helps. Give them go with some sandpaper then soak them, don't sow them until you've persuaded them to swell.

It would be worth checking to see if  it's grafted. See if the strong leafy growth is from below the graft and the poor bits are above the graft.

and don't forget that most fungi growing on trees have moved onto an already dead or dying trees. They are the aftermath, not the cause, of death. Theybreak down dead material, their part in life, death and maintenance of the eco-system

poor advice. The soil is full of fungi and that's how it should be. If you have something like Honey Fungus you won't get rid of it with fungicide, plant something that's HF resistant
