Lathyrus odoratus 'Prince Edward of York' is my absolute favourite sweet pea with deep pink wings and pale pink nose – amazing scent, long-flowering and truly beautiful. 9/10 scent.
No garden is complete without sweet peas. Grow them over arches, tepees and trellis and plant them with your runner beans to draw lots of insect pollinators into your veg patch.
Sweet peas are all easy to grow and will fill your garden and house with the best scent ever. We have some new varieties this year, including several Modern Grandifloras, with wonderful scents and larger flowers and longer stems than the original sweet peas.
We sow our sweet pea seeds in winter and in spring to ensure that you have strong plants flowering throughout the summer.
