I Have set my peas only to find that field mice have eaten most of them, they have been covered by netting for protection from the birds. How do I protect from mice.



Some people set them in half drain pipes and then slide them out into the ground when they are established.
Never tried it as i don't grow peas normally but its supposed to work well.

Grow them in trays or pots instead of planting straight into the ground. I grew mine in 4 - 5 ft lengths of guttering and slid them into prepared furrows when they were big enough. Worked a treat.

Guttering, yes - who'd cut drain pipes in half??? But you get the idea!

Or soak them in paraffin before planting!
