Peanuts are very easy to grow! They're known to be the type of plant that you can "plant and forget", providing they get adequate moisture. Plant in rows after last frost during spring in the vegetable garden or pots/tubs. It is a low bushy plant to around 40cm high. Harvest usually occurs in late summer to autumn. Peanuts typically need around 5 months of warm weather to mature.

As a pasture species it is a summer active perennial with a great peanut taste and can handle moderate grazing by livestock. It requires a good amount of water in summers for best growth. Requires good soil coverage for good germination so drilling and dropping your seed is recommended. You can expect to see flowers in 6-8 weeks, after which you can observe the extraordinary growing process!
