Too late to plant peas and greens in containers?

lisa_z5ny(z5 NY)May 24, 2010

Hi all,

I am a newbie here and totally new to any form of gardening. Consider me to know pretty much nothing. :)

I have been wanting to plant peas and greens from seed but have not gotten around to it yet. (in containers, only. No room in our yard, plus we have tons of groundhogs and bunnies.) Is it too late?

Thanks! :)

Hi Lisa,
It is never too late to plant greens, you should plant some every 2 weeks all summer so you always have a fresh supply coming on. Since you are putting them in containers, move them into shade to protect them from the afternoon sun during the hottest part of the day, or put them in a place they will get dappled sun, and make sure they get plenty of water. Peas do like it cool, but again if you can get the out of the sun during the hottest parts of the day you might be able to get them to produce.
