I did not use a pea inoculate this year and I have never used it in the past: this year I replanted my peas 4 times with poor results. The pea seeds rotted in the ground WHY? The odd seed sprouted but rotted. As I have done in the past, I have used 1 year old chicken manure in my pea row and I don't know what happened this year. My beans are also very spotty as well, possibly 40% of them came up. Any help would be appreciated. My seeds were all purchased fresh this year. They were planted around the 5th of June so the soil was not cold, I don't think.
Make sure the soil is moist and try giving them a bit of slow-release balanced fertilizer at half strength. Also, beans do best in soil that has been inoculated and it's not too late to do this.
