Summer at Harlow Carr Gardens - 10

Here we see young pea plants. Young, tender peas are one of the delights of early summer.

There’s nothing like the flavour of freshly picked peas. Use them as quickly as possible once picked as they lose their sweetness. Dwarf varieties of peas don’t need much in the way of support. The easiest types to grow are mange tout and sugar snap varieties.
