I was wondering if it is too late in the season to start sweet peas? I wanted to start them inside and then transfer them to a container garden outside once they are large enough. I live in south/east Arizona.
I just planted my second crop of peas last week. They are 60 day peas so they should come in before my frosts start but even so they can handle light frost. For you in AZ I don't think you have to worry about frost anytime soon.
Regarding starting them indoors â€“ I have never had issues with mine germinating so I would think starting indoors and transplanting would not be necessary.
I agree with the previous poster. Direct sow your peas. Especially since they have a very shallow root system. Might not turn out well. Just Direct sow where you want them. I got about 100 plants started 2 weeks ago. Almost all have emerged and are now 3-10 inches averaging about 4.5
