the Glory-pea should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall.The Glory-pea can't stand temperatures below zero; they should be grown in cold green houses or at least in a place where they are sheltered by the wind; when every risk of late freezings has gone by we can place them outside or remove the protections.
These plants are climbers, therefore they grow leaning against supports of all types. The Glory-pea Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a purple colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Glory-pea has a shrub- like development.
For climber plants to develop without problems, letís act at the end of the winter, or in autumn, adding some manure, or a slow release fertilizer to the ground. In the spring, every 25-30 days, letís add some specific fertilizer for green or flowering plants to the irrigating water.
During this period of the year the the Glory-pea needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . These plants have a vigorous development; when the stem is wider it might need abundant watering during the long summer months.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Letís locate these climber plants in a slightly heavy soil with an average drainage.
