Peas contain copper, chromium and other trace elements, copper is conducive to hematopoiesis and the development of bone and brain; Chromium is beneficial to the metabolism of sugar and fat, and can maintain the normal function of insulin. The choline, methionine found in peas helps prevent hardening of the arteries, and so on. Many people want to grow peas at home. The following are steps to grow peas on the balcony.
Prepare a 15 cm depth container, basin bottom stone, culture soil (including base fertilizer), scissors, transplant shovel, compound fertilizer, support (support length is 1 meter for planting pea without vine, support length is 2 meters for vine), rope.
Fill the container with culture soil and use your finger to dig a planting hole in the soil -- about the depth of your first knuckle. Dig three holes in each 3-inch pot and place three seeds in each hole. Then cover the seeds loosely with soil and water them.
After 15 to 30 days, when the seeds have taken root, they are ready to be transplanted into a prepared soil mixture of coarse sand.
To transplant, push the whole plant out of the bottom of the pot by hand, taking care not to hurt the roots, and then drop the whole plant into the soil.
Then fill the pot with nearly the same height of soil as the edge of the pot and press the plants with your hands to stabilize the plants.Then pour it through with water.
After 30-45 days, when the seedling has grown to about 20 centimeters, it should be pulled on a strut - pull the stem up to the strut and secure it gently with a string.
Plants with vine peas, the posts need to be 2 meters long. After the post is erected, top fertilizer is applied and a thin layer of earth is added to the surface.
In about 45 days, harvest peas two to three weeks from the time they bloom: chandelier beans are harvested when they are young, green peas and other peas are harvested when they are grown, and sweet peas are harvested when they see their pods plump.
