One of the first vegetables to plant in spring, peas are easy to grow and tasty. Gurney's carries a wide selection of shell peas, snap peas and snow peas. Many pea varieties grow tall and need a trellis or fence to support their vines. Have a small space? Choose a compact variety with small vines that require no staking. A cool season crop, pea seeds sown directly in the garden several weeks before the last frost day in spring. Peas can also be grown as a fall crop.
