Tony, we left peas off the tropical calendar because the climate is usually too hot for them. Have you tried asparagus peas? They can cope with warmer weather. You use the pod whole like sugar peas.

Im in Adelaide, and have planted some garden pea sprouts into a newly constructed raised garden bed. The soil is top quality, they are in an optimum position for sun all day, and the weather has been very forgiving with good sun and light rains, yet my pea sprouts are dying. I am not overwatering and the soil was brand new when i planted them, i also gave a light sprinkling of seasol about 3 weeks after planting to try to revive them, but they are just turning yellow and dying. What can i do? Im quite new to gardening.
