After planting purple hulls for years in my small garden we switched to zipper cream peas the last couple years. I had the idea of putting some sections of cow panel (the ones with probably 4-6" squares) in the rows in hopes they might climb instead of just being a bush. Supposedly they are semi-vining but not sure exactly what that means. Would it be worth my time to put the panels in garden or waste of time?

Do you mean zipper peas? Or cream peas? As in Cream 12's or cream 40's? I've never heard of zipper cream. My pea seed people are telling me there was a crop failure on last year's cream peas for seed.

Not sure. At the local feed store they called them zipper cream peas.
My peas did good last year.
