Pea Supports

I am trying sugar snap peas for the first time this year.  I needed supports and decided to try using bamboo stakes that I already own.  I tied them at the top in a teepee shape.  I am hoping that they will be strong enough.  This will be a year in learning for growing peas.


  1. Those look like they will work really well. Peas are not a really heavy crop so nearly anything will work. Just be sure they are secure so they don't get blown over by the wind!! They should look fantastic in the garden when they are all covered with peas!!

  2. I made a similar support from an upside down tomato cage and garden twine. I think they should work just fine, but like Stony Acres said, make sure they're secure. Maybe you could attach them to the fence some way? A length of garden twine tied to the top, then stapled to the fence might work.

  3. I stuck them in quite far so I believe they should be good. I will keep an eye on them and reinforce them to the fence if need be.
