OK, not exactly hanging baskets. I want to grow peas in a drain pipe which I have cut loads of holes in. I was originally going to put it up against a wall for them to climb up but it would be a much better use of space if I could just hang the pipe up horizontally and have them drape down hanging basket style! Will they waste all their pea growing energy trying to grow upwards or will they just go with the flow?
I'd imagine they would try and grow upwards. Think most things on the Earth have an innate sense of gravity. Not sure whether they'd still produce peas if they were hanging down or not though.
Have found a couple of links...
Hi i forgot all about this topic
well i did try peas more by accident than designe
we planyed mushy peas for pea shoots for the salads and some ended up in an ex window box screwed to the garage wall
well the pea tops were great but as usual i planted too many so we ate the ones in the raised veg bed and left the ones in the box
they grew and dangled flowered and did a nice show then hey presto peas at the right height to pick ,without bending and without pea sticks
so yes you can plant peas in other places quite nicely MOS
sit down with a cupa and the urge will subside
