Re: Please help me with my peas!!!
The inoculant is a bacterium that forms a symbiotic relationship with the pea plants, providing nitrogen in return for sugar. It won’t effect germination at all. For more information on inoculants see this factsheet from Colorado State: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/Pubs/crops/00305.html
Sweet peas (Lathyrus odoratus) and edible peas (Pisum Sativum) are not the same species, so while the inoculant might work for both, it also might not. The factsheet has more details on this.
In general, it is easier to start both types of peas directly in the garden. Sweet peas have deep root systems and are probably better off not being transplanted. If you are nervous about just putting the peas out, you could germinate between two damp paper towels and then plant the pre-germinated seeds. Your sweet pea seeds might germinate better if they are scarified. Renee’s garden seeds has a good explanation of how to do this on their website:
