What is wrong with my snow peas?

When I got the bush, it was very healthy. After I planted it, I followed the care instructions carefully and half of the plant died. The other half is still alive but it is not vining out or doing anything. On another question about snow peas, they said that they don’t do well in hot weather, but I live in New Mexico. The weather here hasn’t reached over 90 yet. Can you help me? Thanks.

Peas do not transplant well. Likely when you first planted them in the ground, they went into shock. In the future, try planting seeds instead of transplanting a mature plant. Peas are very easy to grow so even the newest gardener is usually successful growing them from seed.

As for the temps, yes, peas do very poorly in heat. While it is not yet 90F there, peas don’t do well in temps over 75F. The like cool temps much better. In your area, consider growing peas in spring, fall or possibly even winter when the temps stay nice and cool.
