Peas not flowering

Post  tbrunin on 5/27/2012, 2:58 pm

Hi all, I have had my peas in since end of March, they have been growing fine but no flowers. This is my first year planting peas and don't know when to expect pods. My friends all say theirs have pods, but mine are 18inch plants without. Any suggestions?

Patience Grasshopper! Give them a few more days. Very Happy They will flower in their own time.

We put our snap peas seeds in the ground on April 8th and I just noticed a few flowers starting to appear today. It will happen... Wink

I planted my peas March 20, they began flowering 5 days ago... Please don't worry... they will flower unless your weather is too warm...

Not to worry my weather is not too warm, I live in Canada Very Happy
I am always afraid of too much nitrogen, and getting all growth and no fruit.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I am hoping for flowers in the next week or two if my dates are consistent with my Loveland neighbor.
