What time of year are you planting English peas?

You will have a better chance of success if planted at the correct time of year. In North Florida that would be January to March. Plant September to February in Central and South Florida.

Your best bet is to check with your local county extension office; they can give you the dates for your property.

Look at the top of your screen for "Tools & Apps", scroll down to find the Vegetable Planting Calendar; plug in your zip code and find the dates recommended by NGA.

I agree Try planting some more seeds for your peas now, while the weather is relatively cool. Then, if you can keep the soil cool by shading the root area, or mulching thickly with hay or leaves or something, that will keep them going. Side dress with a timed-release fert when the plants are about 4in. tall, and be sure they're getting lots of water.

We harvested snap peas at our school garden here in Sarasota well into April last year. They were started from seed in January.
