Q.What’s Wrong With My Peas?

Zone Houston, TX, zone 9 | Bethany Jade added on April 13, 2020 | Answered

Many of the leaves and branches on my pea plants are dying off. They get yellow spots then die. I trim the dead ones but my plants don’t look healthy. Is it the heat? We’re in the 80’s here in Houston (zone 9).

Peas can survive around 80, though they do prefer lower. Any higher, and this problem will be exacerbated greatly.

Treat with a fungicide, or bactericide. These articles will help:
