Grow Your Own Nutritious Peanuts

Arachis hypogaea, commonly known as peanut seeds, are perfect for those who want to try something unique and nutritious in their garden. Peanuts are not only a fun project for kids and adults alike, but they also provide a valuable source of plant-based protein and healthy fats. Grow them in pots, containers, or directly in the garden to enjoy homegrown peanuts in just five months.

Features and Benefits

  • Australian Made and Grown: These peanut seeds are locally sourced from Queensland and Australia, ensuring varieties that thrive in Australian conditions.
  • High Seed Turnover: All seed stock is turned over every 12 months, guaranteeing fresh and viable seeds for successful germination.
  • Generous Seed Quantity: Each packet contains a generous amount of seeds for multiple planting opportunities.
  • Hand Packed with Care: Seeds are hand-packed in Brisbane, ensuring the utmost quality and care in each packet.
  • Expert Assistance: Speak to Erica Vale (Jonathon) for any questions or concerns about seed quality, planting, or germination.

How to Use

  1. Choose a sunny spot in the garden or prepare pots for planting the peanut seeds.
  2. Soak peanut seeds in water overnight to soften the outer shell and promote germination.
  3. Sow peanut seeds in well-draining, fertile soil enriched with plenty of organic matter (compost, well-rotted manure, or homemade organic fertiliser).
  4. Space seeds approximately 15cm apart and cover with 1-2cm of soil.
  5. Water the seeds gently to settle the soil, and keep the area moist until germination occurs, usually within seven to ten days.
  6. Monitor and maintain soil moisture, being careful not to overwater (peanuts require steady but not excessive moisture).
  7. Apply liquid fertiliser or compost tea every three weeks during the growing season.
  8. Remove any weeds from the growing area, as they can compete with your plants for nutrients and water.
  9. After approximately five months, harvest your peanuts when the leaves begin to turn yellow and the pods are mature.
  10. Store peanuts in a cool, dry place, and enjoy!

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

Peanut seeds are best for gardeners seeking an unusual, rewarding project and a healthy, nutritious addition to their edible garden. They are well suited for container gardening or planting in small garden spaces. Additionally, peanuts are great for families looking to involve children in the gardening process and teach them the value of growing their own food.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • Peanuts require a warm growing season and are very frost sensitive. Plant seeds in spring to ensure optimal growing conditions.
  • Peanuts are legumes and can add valuable nitrogen to the soil. Consider rotating your crop to improve soil fertility in your garden.
  • Avoid planting peanuts in areas with poor drainage or heavy clay soil, as this can lead to poor growth and potential root diseases.
