Plant details

Peas are an ideal crop for the garden, the fresh produce far superior to bought supplies. There are different kinds of varieties: round-seeded hardy kinds for overwintering, tall maincrop varieties which take 15-16 weeks to mature, and the dwarf wrinkle-seeded early varieties ready about 11-12 weeks after sowing. 'Kelvedon Wonder' is an early type, which can be sown in succession until July. This last sowing is vulnerable to mildew in autumn, although this variety is almost resistant. Support the heavy plants with twiggy sticks. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
