ASPARAGUS PEA ~ attractive red flowers followed by angular pods 25 seeds SOW: mid to late spring in pots, plant out when about 10cm high. Alternatively you can plant in situ – thin seedlings to give spacing of about 35cm GROW: This ornamental looking plant will grow in pots or with the rest of your vegetables - it has delicate foliage and attractive flowers. Harvest the angular pods when 2.5-5 cm long. Regular picking encourages more pods although it is not a prolific producer. EAT: boil in a minimum water or steam, serve with sauce or butter. They can be eaten cooked and cold in salads. Larger pods do tend to be tough so pick young.
