A splendidly reliable maincrop variety, giving up to 10 peas per pod.
Greenshaft also has an exceptionally sweet flavour. It crops heavily towards the tops of the plants (so picking is easy) and is disease resistant.

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.
Keep well watered, especially in dry spells.
