My favourite pale sweet peas, in beautiful delicate colours.

This collection includes three old-fashioned, highly scented varieties:

These three have been trialled repeatedly by us and are outstanding in terms of ease of growth, productivity and perfume. They make excellent garden border plants, as well as cut flowers. Not to be missed.

We sow our highly-scented, old-fashioned sweet peas in the winter, as well as in the spring, so that you will have excellent productive plants that flower throughout the summer.
