Do Snap Peas Need A Trellis?

Do Snap Peas Need A Trellis?

There are two types of peas: bush peas and climbing peas. Some people argue that the bush varieties do not require a trellis, but I recommend using one for every kind of pea!

A pea bush of 3 feet will become too heavy to keep itself up, and it will eventually topple over and collapse. A trellis is necessary to grow healthy, strong peas!

Creating a pea trellis does not have to cost a fortune. Often, trellises can be made with simple, affordable items and used with everything from trellised strawberries to okra plants.


Prepare a small pot filled with a well-drained growing medium. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent excess moisture and root rot.
