Peas & Beans

Peas are best planted in Autumn & Winter, Whilst most Beans are best planted in Spring & Summer. As part of the legume plant family pea and bean plants can also be used as soil-enhancing green manure. Just dig the plant into the soil after fruiting and it will release nitrogen and organic matter into the soil as it rots. Legumes are amongst the richest sources of plant protein, and they also provide dietary fiber, carbohydrates and micronutrients including folate, thiamin, manganese, magnesium and iron.
