Pea straw is the product left over when the pea crop has been harvested; after harvest the straw is raked and baled and stored ready for market. Many farmers grow peas as a rotational crop as peas are a nitrogen fixing plant and are useful for soil improvement - which is very important in our fragile environment.
The straw itself does a good job for soil improvement when used as a mulch in the garden.
Our pea straw is sold as small square bales. One bale will cover about 3-4 square metres of bare ground and more when put around existing plants depending how thick it is laid down.
