Peas require a sunny spot that has been well dug in the autumn and plenty of manure added to retain moisture, they do not grow well in acidic soil so liming may be necessary a few weeks before sowing.  
Sow from mid March when the soil has warmed up through to April for a succession of peas, or October - November to over winter in a tunnel or under a cloche. 
Dig a flat bottomed drill 5cm deep and water the drill, sow the seed around 5cm apart allowing 75cm between rows enough room has to be left between rows to stake the peas and harvest the crop.  
When the plants reach 10cm high they need to be supported with canes, pea nets, twigs or chicken wire.
Alternatively sow indoors on a warm window sill or greenhouse in pots or an old piece of guttering from February for planting out in March.
