Cropping up to two weeks earlier than our famous Onward, this variety has all the same qualities.
Early Onward yields a heavy crop of dark green, blunt ended pods full of delicious peas.
It grows to just 60cm tall, so needs only minimal support.

How to Guide
Make a flat bottomed drill 15cm wide and water it well. Sow about ten seeds per 30cm, spacing them evenly in a zigzag manner. Cover with about 2cm of soil, and firm it down with the flat edge of a rake.
Allow about 60cm between rows. As seedlings emerge, the shoots are very attractive to birds, but a few little twigs placed over the row will give some protection.
