I've got all my seeds now sorted out for this year (unless I get tempted by some more of course...)
I'm growing Marvel of Venice (climbing Italian bean, yellow pods), Eastern Butterwax (dwarf French, HSL, yellowish pods) and Golden Sweet- a yellow podded mange tout. Notice a theme?

Iím going to start some Simpson Special and King Tut for the circle, both climbing peas and I think very tasty. I'm growing Oskar for the first (Real Seeds) I'll sow a few extra to grow for seed and if they are good they may become a candidate too. To really hedge my bets Iím going to be growing several more types so this may all change!
Iíve not decided on beans yet

I'll sow Crown Peas (or tufted peas) plus Triple Treat peas. Does anyone have either of these? If a Grape does can they let me know and I'll sow something else (perhaps a soup pea)

Are Crown peas the same as Salmon Flowered?
I've wanted to try Triple Treat for a while, so hope you will be growing them

The crown peas I have are white flowered, have seen a photo of the salmon flowered ones from the HSL - they do look lovely. I think Flummery (there is an old thread on the Vine and you know your peas) will be able to confirm that Crown Peas are one species although they can have different coloured flowers. All ready to start sowing Triple Treat.

my hatif d'annoy unfortunately did not survive the winter despite best efforts to keep them warm... but got some salmon flowered peas from a kind grape instead... I'll sprout them this week at home and then put them out next weekend...http://onegardenersadventures.blogspot.com/ updated 10-03-2010 with homebrew pics & allotment pics

There used to be more types of crown peas available than today. They have thick, almost fused stems, and the flowers and peas form at the top. Salmon flowered are one kind of crown pea. Never seen the white flowered - this will be interesting!Whoever plants a garden believes in the future.
