Sugar Snap Pea Question-Trellising? Empty Sugar Snap Pea Question-Trellising?

Post  jymarino 5/6/2011, 10:44 am

I planted 9 transplants from the store of Sugar snap peas. They are growing well and I am trellising them as they grow up. Some however are latching onto one another instead of the poles and pulling each other down. Should I trim the tendrills that are troublesome and retrain them or just let them go? I don't have a clean trellis system other than the trellis in the back of the box but most aren't tall enough to reach there yet. I have been pulling sticks off of fallen limbs for makeshift supports and they seem to take to them o.k. Thanks for the advice!

Jennie, let them use the sticks to get "over" to your trellis.

No clipping or trimming. It really is not a problem if they latch on to each other at the bottom, once they get onto your trellis, they will climb, climb, climb. While it might be a little messy at the bottom, your peas will be up on the trellis and fairly easy to harvest.
