A little confused with the snow peas info. It says to grow Apr-Oct which is Autumn, winter to spring but then says at the end start in pots in frost prone areas. In New Zealand -cool/mountain we can get hard frosts throughout that entire time. Are the plants really going to grow in the middle of winter?

Hi They will grow in winter, but not where there are hard frosts. If you get heavy frost wait till the threat of them is over.
