More Details

A beautiful collection of Amethyst coloured sweet peas, especially selected by Sarah for their scent and productivity, available as seeds or plants.

This collection includes three old-fashioned, highly scented varieties 'Flora Norton', 'Mrs Collier' and 'Lord Nelson'. These three have been trialled repeatedly by us and are outstanding in terms of ease of growth, productivity and perfume. They make excellent garden border plants, as well as cut flowers. Not to be missed.

We sow our highly-scented, old-fashioned sweet pea seeds in rootrainers in the winter, as well as in the spring, so that you will have excellent, productive plants that flower throughout the summer.

We also only send out our plants at the correct time for planting so you can just pop them in your patch without any need to grow them on. The plants include full growing instructions.

Genus Lathyrus odoratus
Type Hardy Annual

Border Position Back

Care Tips Remove the climbing tendrils as they grow. Tie the stem into your framework on a regular basis. These can be grown in container pots up a climbing frame. Find out how to grow your sweet peas from seed in Sarah's how-to guide.
