More Details

A beautiful soft palette is what unites this incredibly scented, long-stemmed, long-season selection of florist sweet peas.

The seed packet contains a mix of the following varieties and the seedling collection contains 4 seedlings each of:
Genus Lathyrus
Group/Species odoratus
Type Hardy Annual
Common Name Sweet Pea
Border Position Climber
Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Scent Scented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Well-drained
Height 1.5m (5ft)
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 - August (winter-sown) or June - September (spring-sown), or 12-14 weeks from spring-sowing of seed.
Vase Life 4-5 days. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. This has a beautiful scent. Add a little sugar syrup to the flower water to extend vase life.

Not a great display produced. Perhaps the hot weather was something to do with it, although they were kept well waterwed.

From the very beginning from ordering to receiving I am extremely happy with service.
One of my moans about life today, is nobody takes trouble over their work. BUT this doesn't seem to apply to your company, thank goodness and thank you. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful colour combination, lovely long stems for a time. Unfortunately I don't think sweet peas like my soil they quickly go to very short stems not suitable for cutting after a few weeks in spite of feeding and watering but they were definitely the nicest sweet peas I'd ever bought.
Well packaged on arrival, could not have asked for more from Sarah Raven.

The very hot summer stunted the growth of the plants, and they did not grow to their usual height but this was experienced by most growers at our horticultural society. Nontheless we had plenty of blooms and they made a lovely display indoors and outside. Pre delivery service excellent and the plants arrived in perfect condition although some of the plants were tiny.
