Austrian Winter Pea

Regular price $3.99

Austrian Winter Peas (Pisum sativum) are an ideal winter cover crop, withstanding dips in temperatures to 10° F. This rapid growing legume nourishes your soil by fixing nitrogen and adding organic matter. If planted early enough in the fall, pea pods will appear which make for a delicious late-fall-garden snack.

Winter-hardy and drought-tolerant cover crops can help cover the soil of your home garden beds during the off season. We've included enough seed in one packet to cover an 8' x 4' garden bed. Improving soil health through cover crop planting is an easy and low cost way of maintaining your garden from year to year. Large, premium seed packets give instructions on how to grow and when to plant outdoors
