Mystery Dwarf Peas
Vic Fox has sent us a note which shows that you cannot be sure that what the packet says is not always what you are going to get.
“I bought dwarf peas from Mr Fothergill this year I think they were the variety Meteor, most of them were, but as you can see from the photo some were a little taller! As they grew I first put in twiggy sticks to allow for their maximum growth, then taller ones as they kept growing and finally 8ft bean canes with string between them, the final height was around 6ft, 3 of them had bicolour purple and pink flowers. In the end we had a good crop of peas from what appeared to be the tallest dwarf peas in town
Did any other members buy this variety, I wonder?”
