Q.Snow Peas

Anonymous added on March 30, 2014 | Answered

I started snow peas indoors from seed. Now they are three weeks old and about 6″ tall with 3-4 sets of leaves. I’ve had them under a grow light, but they still seem spindly. Should I pinch them back to make them bushier or will that be harmful?

I would wait to pinch them until they get planted outside. This article will help with reducing how leggy they are: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/seeds/leggy-seedling.htm And here is more information on pinching the peas, if you have not already read it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/sweet-pea/pinching-sweet-peas.htm
