I have had pea shoots as a garnish in a couple of restaurants and they were delicious. I read somewhere that you could grow the shoots from dried peas can anyone advise the best way to do this

Just plant them! You can grow them thicker if you just want the shoots - harvest when abt 3 inches long.

Or I suppose you could sprout them, which is slightly different; you can do it indoors, keep them moist but not drowned, washing & changing the water regularly, until they begin to sprout. You can get various gadgets to make sprouting easier, but it can be done in a shallow dish with a wet paper towel.

SO easy to grow. Just get a packet of dried peas from the supermarket..... cheaper than buying a packet of seeds. Soak them over night and then pop them in a plastic food bag with a handful of multipurpose compost. Leave them on a warm windowsill to geminate. When they send out shoots then plant them outside in a pot or garden planter and leave them until they are tall enough for your liking and harvest them. You should get 2 to 3 cuttings from them. To keep a constant supply start off another handful of peas every 7 days. Sooo easy to do, soooo cheap and soooo good for you as well as being tasty. If you get hooked on growing these try planting runner and climbing french beans in pots next year. So much cheaper than buying them imported from Eggpt and low on air miles and carbon footprint. Always good to eat seasonally. So many vegetables that are easy to grow in pots in the garden.

Thank you, mrs T, will give it a go. My husband and I grew carrots in pots this summer, our first attempt at veg, tiny little things, we could,nt wait, but they were out of this world tasty, and we got four dinners out of them. At two pound a pop in Tesco for tiny ones, they were a bargain too. Please keep posting, it,s good to have a new perspective and ideas. XxCarole
