Mangetout Peas Carouby de Mausasane Organic 10 x 3cm Vegetable Plug Plants
This product is unavailable
Mange tout peas are a sweet, young pea with a flat pod. Their crisp, refreshing flavour is milder than most other peas. These peas are fantastic in cold salads, but really come to life if added to a stir fry or paella. Combine with tofu and garlic to create a wonderful, light vegetarian dish.
How to grow mangetout at home
These easy to grow vegetables can mostly be left alone once planted. Choose a location with a well-draining soil that receives partial sun throughout the day. Put a stake next to each plant to support it as it grows. Weed the area around the plant regularly to keep it clear. Water regularly to keep the soil moist, topping up with liquid fertilizer every two weeks in the summer to improve growth.
How do you harvest mangetout?
Pick whole pods regularly while still young and not stringy.
What are plug plants?
Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.
How do you plant a plug plant?
When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
