This will be the first tme to attempt growin these. Any ideas on the best time to plant? I think it should be soon, but don't want frigid cold to harm the tender plants. Anybody ever messed with soil innoculants to encourage nitrogen fixation for peas?

Pauln,

Some people sew these in the fall and they come up when the temps are OK in the spring. Also, early is not a problem except for soil compaction due to wet ground. If you had prepared your soil in the fall and put say straw over it to prevent erosion, you would be OK. So any time soon will be good to plant them.

This is a plant that won't be negatively affected by cool or even cold snaps. This is the time of year it likes to grow in.

I still have snow out my window here in 5b in mid Mo. As soon as it melts here I'll move my mulch back out of the way and plant my peas.

I don't innoculate but a lot of gardeners swear by it.

Thanks jbraun. The bed is raised and heavily mulched from last summer. I think I may just put some seeds out on Saturday!
