Common Name Sweet Pea
Border Position Cutting Garden, On a Climbing Support
Soil Type Broad Tolerance
Scent Scented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1.8m (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-April, 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 a hard seed coat so it may help to soften the seed before sowing. Do this by placing seeds on damp kitchen paper and putting somewhere warm until seeds swell or sprout. You can also make a small nick in the seed coat to help moisture enter the seed before sowing.
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
Vase Life 4-5 days. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. This has a beautiful scent.
Harvesting Keep picking as often as you can.

Good germination of seeds, produced nice healthy plants for all of the cultivars except the one that you sent 2 packets of seeds (King Edward VII or Prince Edward of York). Stubbornly refused to germinate. The few that did were pretty weak seedlings.
