I was late sowing these and getting them into the ground given our long harsh winter this year. They very quickly took off though and are still flowering profusely at the end of September. Everyone has commented on how beautiful they are and the scent is just divine. I've grown them over an arch (inspired by Sarah!) in the veg garden and they really give it the wow factor. I'll certainly be growing them this way every year now!

I bought a pack of the Venetian Sweet Pea Seeds and sowed them back in November. Now in June (and after a spring of pretty horrible weather) I've got abundant 4 foot plants giving me as many flowers as I can pick! The colours, particularly the Matucana are so sumptuous and the smell is out of this world. I've sown some more this spring and these plants are now out in the garden too so I'm hoping the flowers will keep on coming for months!
