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 Cut back to ground level in autumn.
Flowering July - September
Vase Life 4-5 days. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. This has a beautiful scent.
