The Edible Gardener series on the Television. I watched her plant up dried peas bought cheaply from a supermarket to grow on and harvest as pea shoots. She made it look so easy. I gave it a go and it is easy!!! All you do is fill a container with compost, poke in as many dried peas as you can, water and leave to grow! In the past I have bought all types of peas in fancy gardening packets and never had any success. The peas I used for this experiment were bought from the dried goods aisle in the supermarket and meant to be used to soak and cook. I think the packet was less than 40 pence and I still have loads more peas to use! The proof of the pea shoots are shown in the photo above.
