Anyone else find this year poor for peas? I suspect it was too hot. I got one decent harvest from and that was it. Usually I get around 3 weeks of pickings. I watered them an awful lot in advance of a ...

I have a flat roof that gets a lot of sun. It would have a small wall around it to provide a small sheltered area

I may have been wrong on the Maris Peers - took a few out of the ground last week, about 3 weeks after the bunch I had previously eaten and they were delicious, maybe they just needed a bit of time to ...
