I have some (Lincoln Shell Sweet) peas that were started in cups. Can I transplant them or am I just wasting my time? I've read that they don't transplant well.

I've never done this, and don't plan to since I have such a long growing season here... While I've always been told peas do not transplant well, there IS information on how to do it available at the following sites:

http://www.reneesgarden.com/articles/swp-transplant-tips.html

http://www.gardens.com/fruits-vegetables-herbs/how-to-transplant-peas.html

So, maybe it's not recommended, but it can be done with care.

Great links, Michelle! I may try to transplant one or two and start one or two from seeds and see how it goes. This is all a grand experiment for me anyway.

P.S. I clicked the Autism site. Thanks for sharing it! I have three children who are on the spectrum and have Fragile X Syndrome.

I look forward to hearing how the peas do!

And I'm glad I was able to share the Autism link with you! I found it a while ago through Facebook, and I signed up for a daily reminder to click. I have a son with mild Autism, maybe Asperger's, though further testing is needed.

Peas really don't lie it very much to be transplanted, but it's worth a shot. Did you make your Mel's Mix by the recipe? That will help. You are in zone 6A? You could go ahead and try planting seed straight into the garden.

transplant peas? Empty Sugar Snap Peas

Post  obrdrln 5/4/2012, 6:08 pm

I started SSPs in vermiculite in the house and transplanted them in my vertical 2 x 4 box. They're doing great---"climbing" the twigs I have guiding them to the netting.

Perhaps I'm too cavalier about this SFG thing. I've done everything I'm supposed to as far a MM goes, put in a drip watering system, etc. Today I potted three cabbage plants and 4 cukes into Folgers coffee containers (poked holes in the bottom). The spacing isn't right but they were plants from seeds that were "leftovers" and far too healthy to snip off. I figure, nothing ventured......What do I have to lose except a plant that would have been snipped and thrown into the compost bin anyway.

Sure wish I could get the photo upload to work for me!!!!

we grew a few extra sugar snap peas in plastic cups for just incase our direct in soil seeds did not all germ....well most of them did so we ended up with extra's....my son decided he wanted them in his self watering container filled with MM so we transplanted those seedlings from the plastic cups into his container and they are doing very well!.....the main thing i noticed is they seem to have a very long thick white root....so we were carful not to hurt that root Very Happy i think what help to is we started them in very loose and light MM.....
i say give it a try!

hugs

transplant peas? Empty They don't like it

Post  CharlesB 5/5/2012, 6:19 am

but they do make it.

I did a few this year and they were definitely in a bad mood for a while (two weeks) before they got back to growing. I noted not to try it again.

So far they're doing OK. They were also damaged by a hail storm before they were transplanted, so I'm thrilled that they're not all dead! I also planted some seeds but they haven't germinated yet.

I had soaked a bunch of Tall Telephone peas (from Baker Creek) intending to direct-seed them, but we ran into a delay with the SFG boxes. I decided instead of chucking the seeds I'd put them in Jiffy pellets. Out of about 20 peas I think 16 germinated, and I transplanted them all when the box was ready. I peeled off the netting and took some of the extra peat off of them.

Although a couple (the ones that were smallest anyway) went into shock and stopped developing for a week or so, all of them have eventually come around and the ones that were biggest when I transplanted them (on May 6) are starting to climb. So yes, it can be done. Smile

All the thirty odd pea plants of mine were soaked for 24 hrs , then started in MM in a sort of cup , every one is growing fine after transplanting them out into the beds. The first planting are well in flower this afternoon .


Water the area well for a few minutes where you are hoping to put the transplants.


Then soak the pot in water at near air temp so it comes half way up the cup for a few hours prior to slipping them out into a cupped hand . The pea stem going between the middle & ring finger . Then with a simple turn of your wrist let the root and MM slip into a pre prepared hole . Draw in the mm around the plant and water it with a couple of cups of water (that is again at the local air temperature ) around each of the newly planted transplants.
