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.
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 Late May from an autumn sowing, early summer if sown in spring.
Vase Life Should last 4-5 days. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Add a little sugar syrup to the flower water to extend vase life. I always pick sweet peas with elastic bands on my wrist. Once I have a bunch, I band them and put them in a bucket of water, adding to those I already have. Once inside, I leave the elastic band on till I’ve tucked the bunch into a vase and then cut the band. It saves ages fiddly about and stops stems falling out. To add shape to a vase, I also pick some longer vines, with several flowering stems on one vine. As long as this is cut above a pair of leaves, more flowers will form so you don’t have to worry that this is wasteful.
