Just to give the final result, this is the set up from the 'bad' side. We had our first feed on Saturday and, by the look of things, will have difficulty eating all that are showing now. The roped unit beyond in the distance also has edible pods on it.

As a most productive use of a square yard/metre, especially for those with limited space, I think it proves the point.

I notice that the willows have shed most of their leaves now so, if you're looking for next year's pea boughs (or even bean sticks), you can cut them in the next month or so, tie them into bundles and leave them on your plot so that they dry out.

As always, hazel or chestnut (sweet) are preferable but, as mentioned further back in this thread, willow is far more plentiful and can work without taking root if cut at this time of year.
