Hello. Something, I don't know what, has taken most of the tiny new shoots off one or two of my newly sown climbing Alderman pea. Please advise if possible. I don't want to put pyrethrum or anything on such a new little plant.J.

If they eat the eye/heart out of the new seedlings then the plant won't grow much. Try and protect them with shade cloth or mossy netting etc until thy grow bigger.

Mike L. How do I know when peas are ready to pick (and similarly climbing/beans)? Thanx. J.

Mike L thanx for that. I don't know what mossy netting is but will 'google' it and get some. Appreciated. J
