    To the best of my knowledge, peas climb, which would indicate 'up', rather than down. I picture them climbing the supports and ending up on your roof. You'll have to tell us if your experience is different than that. Good luck!

    yes yes and yes again i have been doing this for years also grown them in old tights full of compost and over the branches of trees and large shrubs.their little tendrills are strong and hang on whatever the weather only thing to point out is hanging baskets dry out very quickly i made a paper mulch added it to the baskets to help hold some water if really hot i would soak in the evenings

      So, in a hanging basket, the plants don't try to climb the supports? This would be something to see!

    its also easier to locate and pick the pods, the new leaves are great in salad or very lightly steamed
