how to take care of sugar snap peas
my plants are not growing very well, some got yellow leaves, do they need banana peels, Epsom salts or coffee grounds or what else can I do for them?
If you are growing in a container, the plant is totally dependent on fertilizer, one that is meant for vegetables. Banana peels, epsom salt and coffee grounds are recommended by people who don't know the science of soils and nutrient uptake by plants. When they have been looked at in controlled studies, they don't hold up. Banana peels and coffee grounds are great for the compost pile. Adding 1-2 inches of compost annually is beneficial to soil health. If temps are already above 80 F where you are, peas will not do well. They are grown as spring and fall crops when it is cooler. Sometimes yellow leaves are just a sign that older leaves have done their job and are "retiring". (senescence) Write back and post a picture. Give as much information as you can on your current garden practices.
