Peas: Progress No. 9 Planting Instructions:
Pea plants prefer cool weather and partial sun. Temperatures should be between 60 and 75 degrees, but the growing season may be extended if you use shade cloth or frost fabrics to protect the plants. Soak seeds to before planting to help prevent disease and to assist germination. Sow about 25 pea seeds every foot in a 3" wide row. Plant in two rows spaced 8 to 12" apart. The plants will do best in soil with plenty of added matter and a pH of 5.5 to 6.8. Water moderately until the plants bloom, then lower the rate of watering. Progress #9 is resistant to wilting and its dwarf vines do not require staking. Grow time is 65 days.

Peas: Progress No. 9 Harvesting Instructions:
Generally, peas are ready for harvest 3 weeks after the pea blossom appears, before peas are fully developed in the pods. Harvesting pea pods regularly extends the plant's production.
