Moisture Well-drained
Height 2 metres (6ft)
Spacing Plant out, 2 plants to a vertical support, 15cm (6in) apart in a mild spell in March-May.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow October-December or January-March, 2 seeds into 1 rootrainer. When roots fill container, pot on 2 seedlings together into a 1 litre pot. Pinch out tips when plants have 4 pairs of leaves. If autumn sown, overwinter in a light, cool place. Sweet peas often have quite a hard seed coat so it may help to soften the seed before sowing. To do this, place the seeds on some damp kitchen paper and pop them in a warm spot. Once the seeds start to swell or sprout they are ready to sow. If the seeds don’t seem to be swelling you can try making a small nick in the seed coat (opposite the ‘eye’) as this will help moisture enter the seed and kick-start the germination process.
Care Tips Remove the climbing tendrils as they grow. Tie the stem into your framework on a regular basis. Can be grown in deep container pots up a climbing frame. Find out how to cordon train your sweet pea in Sarah's how-to guide.
Flowering May - September

My sweet peas were very slow to get started but produced well with three to four flowers on each stem. Lasted 6-8 weeks, very few pink and seemed to revert to white.

I ordered a mixture of seedlings and seeds. The seedlings were all amazing. My sweet peas have never been better! Most with lovely long stems and a gorgeous scent.

Not all of the seeds sprouted which was a bit disappointing though the majority did.

I will definitely be ordering seedlings again next year. I have been filling my house with cut sweet peas and giving bunches to friends who have all been amazed and delighted.

Thank you Sarah Raven!

They are strong plants and have romped away. I have had three bunches already! The white ones seem to be more flowers than the pink which is a shame because the pink is so beautiful but I am very pleased as I am with all my perchases from you MMG

The seedlings arrived in excellent condition and I nurtured them carefully prior to planting them out. As a first time sweet pea grower, the experience has been excellent and this particular group of scented plants have grown very well. The colours are excellent and I will be purchasing again.

This year, has it been the weather, but the sweet peas have not been nearly as good so previous years. The flowers have been smaller, shorter stems, except for the pink one. Also they have had a shorter life.

Despite me sowing the seeds in spring, when I prefer to sow sweet peas in the autumn, and keeping them in the greenhouse too long because I was waiting for an allotment plot, the plants have done surprisingly well. I don't know what's better, the scent or the colours. I love them.

I grew these from seed, following the instructions to the letter, however, it's not the first time I've grown sweet peas from seed.
I was looking forward to a wigwam of strong colours, heavy perfume and lovely long stems to cut and dot around the house.
Sadly not to be.
They were with out exception all shades of white, cream and the palest lavender with the shortest stems I've ever seen on a sweet pea!
No bud or posy vases for these, they just about managed in egg cups!
They did however, smell wonderful.

Superb

I could not let the sweet pea season come to an end without letting you know how superb your 24 seedling collection has been.
As I write we are coming to the end at 8ft high for the 3rd time on my sweet pea frame. Whilst the petals are now few, the scent is still as strong as ever.
On opening the packaging I was delighted to find a considerable root content which I transferred to tubes until I was ready to plant them out here in the North of England.
I have passed your name to several people who have admired them.
With grateful thanks

Just beautiful

This was the first year I have owned my own garden so sweet peas were a must! They started flowering at the end of May and are still going now! I've had to give bunches away to family, friends, colleagues and neighbours to keep up with them, and still have lots in the garden for the pollinators.

Everyone has loved them, i'm getting them again next year!

Well worth the money

Reviewed 18th July 2016 by Sarah Sarkhel

My small garden is north facing and overlooked so it's hard for me to get a long growing season. As a result I try to get a head start with bought seedlings. These sweet pea seedlings were very robust and healthy on arrival and have gone on to be six feet tall and produce a spectacular scented show in stunning colours. They really repay feeding and tendril chopping - we've had vases and vases of flowers from 24 seedlings. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, healthy, strong plants, perfectly packaged.

Reviewed 14th June 2016 by Aileen Mitchell Stewart

I ordered these late in the season at a sale price but would happily buy next year at full price. The 'seedlings' are more like young plants, and look full of vigour and health. They arrived fresh, beautifully packaged, in white paper wrappers round the root balls, and were clearly labelled with each variety. I'd be happy to send the collection as a gift, they were so well presented. Whether the poor dears will survive my less than expert handling I don't know, but it's clear that all at Sarah Raven really care about the health and quality of their plants, and have given them the best possible start in life. Now it's up to me. I'm not sure I can handle the responsibility!
