Ask at your green grocers or supermarkets. If not much demand for them then they won't supply them. Grow them your self - easy to grow.

Hi. I'm growing peas at the moment. I have never grown them (or much else) before and they are such a beautiful plant. I have about 18 peas at the moment, and don't know when to pick them. Some of them look tempting. So, yes. do have a go at growing them yourself. You would never regret it. I started mine (in or out of season, I don't know) by sowing them in a good quality seed mix in punnets and then planted them out. They are Climbing Alderman peas. Soft, velvety leaves, and the prettiest flowers and lovely fat pods. (But don't touch!!) I put stakes and twine around for them to climb but they are also climbing my vegetable garden fence. I alternated them with climbing blue lake beans (not to be confused with climbing blue ridge tomatoes as I initially did). :)
