    So I have my Alderman peas growing nicely under fleece. These ones are for pea shoots. Question 1) Do I grow them up string/net like peas for pods or do I leave them growing on the ground? 2) Do I only harvest side shoots or should I harvest the main growing shoot to make them more bushy?

    When plants are 10-12in/30cm tall you pinch off the top 2in/5cm as first harvest, then new shoots appear including sideshoots for your next harvest after 10-12 days, then keep picking for two months, no supports needed, your picking is pruning.
