Tom Thumb Pea

At 8" tall, this aptly named dwarf pea is ideal for container gardening and is very frost-tolerant. Originating in England and introduced in the United States in the mid-19th century, there were several strains of this variety; over time, further reductions in height and time to maturity were achieved, leading to the pea we know as Tom Thumb today.

Growing Instructions - Peas thrive in cool weather. Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. In addition to containers, Tom Thumb is good for cold-frame production and for planting in flower borders.
