Positive Horseshoe On May 15, 2005, Horseshoe from Efland, NC (Zone 7a) wrote:

One of my all-time garden pea favorites! Due to their short height I prefer to grow them in a broadcast style (throw the seeds out as if you were sowing grass). The plants grow close enough together that they will support each other and do not require staking. This close growth also suppresses weeds.
