Climbing telephone peas

Shelling varieties of peas produce pods of sweet and tender peas. They’re so delicious eaten fresh that many will never make it back into the house! Kids love picking, shelling and devouring peas in the vegie patch, so they’re an ideal and fun way to add more vegies into their diet. Peas are also packed with vitamins, protein and fibre, so they’re super good for you too.

Climbing peas are the ultimate space saver vegie. They can be grown along a trellis on a fence or up a tepee or tripod, taking up minimal horizontal space.

Yates® Climbing Telephone Peas is a vigorous variety that produces a huge crop of large, sweet-flavoured pods over a long period. This shelling variety has best flavour if harvested as soon as pods are plump and well filled.

Here are the easy steps to growing your very own climbing peas:

Tip for cool climate gardeners: in cold and cool zones wait until June to start sowing climbing telephone pea seeds.

Lettuce is always fantastic to have on hand throughout the year, to create a healthy salad, quick side dish or add to a sandwich or wrap. Home grown lettuce is not only convenient but also you can pick it at its most tender and sweet and forget buying bagged salad that quickly goes slimy in the fridge.

Yates® Lettuce Salad Mix is a gourmet selection of Yates’ most popular and colourful lettuce varieties, including crisp cos, tasty mignonettes, nutty buttercrunch and leafy iceberg.

Here are the simple steps to growing your own salad:
